When Agatha is given the opportunity to meet her favourite author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, she nervously agrees, but soon finds herself in the midst of a mystery of her own. Can she and her twin sister Christie locate a very important sandwich in time for its grand scientific reveal?
A Discovery Disappears is a brilliant mystery story for younger readers, with enough clues to allow them to solve the case alongside its protagonists, without the outcome being obvious from the start.
