Kate Shackleton is back! She is one of my favourite book detectives and in Death in the Stars she is solving the murder of comic Billy Moffat. It’s 1927 and eclipse fever has taken over the country. Kate is asked to arrange a flight for a music hall star, Selina Fellini and Billy from Leeds to Giggleswick School. The school happens to be one of the best places to view the eclipse. Two things stuck me about this:
- Why would anyone hire a private detective to sort out travel arrangements for them? There has to be something more.
- Someone called a school ‘Giggleswick’ and thought it was a good idea.
