Synopsis

A hilarious new mystery adventure perfect for fans of Robin Stevens and Lemony Snicket.



On the day they are born, each Swift is brought before the sacred Family Dictionary. They are given a name and a definition, and it is assumed they will grow up to match. Unfortunately, Shenanigan Swift has other ideas.



So what if her relatives all think she's destined to turn out as a troublemaker, just because of her name? Shenanigan knows she can be whatever she wants - pirate, explorer or even detective.



Which is lucky, really, because when one of the Family tries to murder Arch-Aunt Schadenfreude, someone has to work out whodunit.



With the help of her sisters and cousin, Shenanigan grudgingly takes on the case, but more murders, a hidden treasure and an awful lot of suspects make thing seriously complicated.



Can Shenanigan catch the killer before the whole household is picked off? And in a Family where definitions are so important, can she learn to define herself?

Beth Lincoln is Northern, queer and perpetually hungry. A dilettante if you want to be fancy and a chronic dabbler if you don't, Beth has one degree that says she can read, another that says she can write, and a love of word games, puzzles, Oxford commas, and puns. Her first children's novel, which explores themes of self-identity, familial pressure and murder, earned her a place on Penguin Random House's WriteNow scheme.
