Full of warmth, eccentricity, humour and plenty of action, DEMELZA & THE SPECTRE DETECTORS is the debut novel from the multi-talented Holly Rivers, who played Drusilla Paddock in ITV’s original Worst Witch series!
Demelza loves science – she loves it so much that she stays up late to work on her inventions.
But she soon discovers she’s also inherited a distinctly unscientific skill: Spectre Detecting. Like her grandmother, she can summon the ghosts of the dead.
But when Grandma Maave is kidnapped, Demelza and her pasty-faced best friend, Percy, must leap into action to solve the deadly mystery …
- A warm and eccentric middle-grade mystery story by debut author Holly Rivers.
- Contemporary with a fantasy twist, this is thoroughly modern, charming and full of action – themes of death and the afterlife are handled with a light touch.
- Lockwood & Co meets Skulduggery Pleasant with a fresh, funny twist.
- As a child, Holly was a lead actress in ITV’s original Worst Witch series!
