In this first mystery, Neesh is all set to take her starring bridesmaid turn, in full-on orange lengha, at her Aunty Bindi's wedding when, in a most horrible twist of events, the groom is kidnapped, sending Neesh and friend Milo off instead on an intrepid course of sleuthing. Fast-paced and stormingly funny with fun footnotes on Hindi words and...Elvis Presley. A flamboyant cast of characters include OTT Aunty Bindi, mischievous Granny Jas, imminent-cousins - Twin Goths - Manny and Mindy, plus an escaped lobster. A new and distinct Brummie tec series by a fresh new voice guessed it...the West Midlands. Hilarious, immensely readable and bubbling with the warmth of family. Age 8-12, Paperback 225pp
