Add to Basket

A brilliantly funny young murder mystery from a rising stand-up comedian, podcaster and filmmaker - and exciting new talent in children's fiction.

Many people go their whole lives without noticing anything that is afoot, amiss, or even untoward; without ever experiencing that toe-tingling, stomach-twisting sensation that a mystery is about to unfold.

Not Bonnie Montgomery - the world's best detective. Not that anyone (other than Grampa Banks) has heard of her... But they might have heard of the great Montgomery Bonbon, the well-dressed gentleman detective who (apart from the hat and moustache) looks suspiciously like a 10-year-old girl.

Their newest case: solving the mystery surrounding a highly suspicious death at the Hornville Museum. Together they'll interview some dodgy witnesses, scour the scene for clues and - above all - hope no one notices that Bonnie and Montgomery are never in the same room at the same time...

'Enormous fun - Montgomery Bonbon is my new favourite detective!'
- Katherine Woodfine

'Murder at the Museum is a terrific twisty, turny tale as Montgomery Bonbon solves all the clues to a fantastic and funny detective adventure. Alasdair Beckett-King has written a book that is perfect for readers who love mystery, mayhem and fake moustaches.'
- Shane Hegarty

'Thought-provoking and funny, readers will find everything they want in a solve-along mystery. Suspects, clues, red herrings and secret identities are revealed with charm and so much personality. Bonnie is a feisty heroine who doesn't let anything stop her. Add in seagulls, scones and an interfering scarlett macaw for a story you won't be able to put down.'
- Scope For Imagination

'Beckett-King affectionately satirises the murder mystery genre.'
- The Bookseller February 2023 Previews
