Editor reviews

"The second book in Robin Stevens' fabulous Wells and Wong schoolgirl detective series - think St Trinians mixed with Miss Marple. These are thrilling books for tween detectives who adore solving dastardly murders, jolly hockey sticks and iced buns for tea." ( Guardian)

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Arsenic for Tea by Robin Stevens, read by Gemma Chan.
Schoolgirl detectives Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are at Daisy's home, Fallingford, for the holidays. Daisy's glamorous mother is throwing a tea party for Daisy's birthday, and the whole family is invited, from eccentric Aunt Saskia to dashing Uncle Felix. But it soon becomes clear that this party isn't really about Daisy at all.
Naturally, Daisy is furious. Then one of their party falls seriously, mysteriously ill - and everything points to poison. With wild storms preventing anyone from leaving or the police from arriving, Fallingford suddenly feels like a very dangerous place to be.
Not a single person present is what they seem - and everyone has a secret or two. And when someone very close to Daisy looks suspicious, the Detective Society must do everything they can to reveal the truth...no matter the consequences.

"A delight.... The Agatha Christie-style clues are unravelled with sustained tension and the whole thing is a hoot from start to finish." ( Daily Mail)
"A feel good blend of Malory Towers and Cluedo.... Stevens has upped her game in this new volume." ( Telegraph)

Arsenic for tea #amazing!

I absolutely loved it!
Arsenic for tea is an amazing book that I really enjoyed when me and my sister heard it on Audible!
The murder mystery was full of suspense and suprise, I didn't have a clue what the result would be in the end.
