Beatrice May Ross is smart, observant and analytical. So when a dead body is discovered at the Museum where she's doing work experience, she's determined to use her sleuthing skills to solve the case.
A Pocketful of Eyes will keep the reader guessing right to the very end with loads of twists and turns, plenty of laughs, a pacy plot, a very appealing lead character, a handsome Boy with a fascinating for unusual animal mating habits, surreptitious nocturnal visits to the Catacombs, a hot kissing scene on the back of a stuffed tiger, and of course, a dead body in the Red Rotunda.
