Ruby Redfort #2: Take Your Last Breath
Hey, buster! Tough-cookie sleuth Ruby Redfort is back for a second detective mission. That means off-the-wall drama, razor-sharp humour and lots of very miserable baddies. This time, Ruby takes to the wide ocean for a case that has her all at sea. (Or it would, if she wasn’t always two steps ahead of the game.) Can Ruby crack the case of the Twinford pirates and avoid being eaten by a sea monster? Plus: will she dodge the evil clutches of the seriously creepy Count von Viscount?
