Ruby Redfort burst onto the scene in October 2011, and, in the words of Julia Eccleshare, "put imagination and fun back into childhood".

Now, everyone's favourite girl detective is back for a second mind-blowing instalment, packed with all the off-the-wall humour, action and friendship of the first book. This time, though, it's an adventure on the wide open ocean, and Ruby is all at sea... Can she crack the case while evading the clutches of the evil Count von Viscount? Well, you wouldn't want to bet against her...

    Comments about Ruby Redfort : Take Your Last Breath:

    A great book, and a must have for all young crime/mystery readers! I got the first book whilst in Bendigo and loved it. When I saw that this have come out I was literally a whistling kettle that needed to be taken off the stove. AWESOME!
