"I swear to be a good and clever member of the Detective Society, and to logically detect the crimes presented to me using all the cleverness I have, not placing reliance on grown-ups, especially the police." The Detective Society Pledge

Robin Stevens is back by popular demand! After the success of her Late Late Toy Show appearance, and with thousands of loyal readers keenly following the exploits of the Wells and Wong Detective Society, we’re delighted that Robin is joining Tall Tales again this year to chat about Death Sets Sail and her exciting plans for a new series. Death Sets Sail is her final book featuring Hazel Wong and Daisy Wells, but don’t worry readers, the detective work is being taken up by a younger generation, led by Hazel’s little sister May, in a new series called The Ministry of Unladylike Activity, set during World War Two.

From the age of twelve Robin was determined to write daring murder mysteries, and hoped she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). An award-winning and best-selling author, she also wrote The Guggenheim Mystery, the sequel to Siobhan Dowd’s The London Eye Mystery. Robin will be chatting to Grainne Clear, Commissioning Editor, Walker Books.
