Twelve-year-old Maisie (The Case of the Stolen Sixpence) won't miss out on an opportunity to go sleuthing. When actress Lila Massey's jewels are stolen, Maisie gets a job at London's Dauntry Theater. Readers will find the mystery challenging enough to stay engaged but will delight in solving it just before our spunky heroine. Line illustrations help paint the prim Victorian setting.
