Publisher Comments:

A five-star mystery now in paperback!

Ted and Kat watched their cousin Salim board the London Eye, but after half an hour it landed and everyone trooped off — except Salim. Where could he have gone? How on earth could he have disappeared into thin air? Ted and his older sister, Kat, become sleuthing partners, since the police are having no luck. Despite their prickly relationship, they overcome their differences to follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin. And ultimately it comes down to Ted, whose brain works in its own very unique way, to find the key to the mystery.

This is an unput-downable spine-tingling thriller — a race against time.

Review:

“Everything rings true here, the family relationships, the quirky connections of Ted's mental circuitry, and, perhaps most surprising, the mystery.” Booklist, Starred

Review:

“The best mysteries have at their centers gifted but very human sleuths — their abilities balanced by equally significant flaws or idiosyncrasies. This one is no exception.” The Horn Book Magazine, Starred

Synopsis:

Ted and Kat watch their cousin Salim board the London Eye. But after half an hour it lands and everyone steps off--except Salim. Where did he go? Since the police are having no luck, Ted and Kat become sleuthing partners, in this acclaimed mystery.

Not everything that goes up necessarily needs to come down. When Ted’s cousin Salim comes to visit, they plan to take him on the London Eye. Having only one ticket, they offer it to Salim, and watch his pod go all the way around. Once it gets to the very top, Ted and his sister, Kat, both yell, “Now!” As Salim’s slowly approaches the ground, they walk over to the ride’s exit to meet him. As his pod reaches the end of the ride, Ted and Kat watch for his smiling face. But there is no Salim. They watch for two pods afterward, but still no Salim. Kat even buys the souvenir picture from the pod they thought was Salim’s, and from the pods before and after his. Salim wasn’t to be found in any of the pictures. Will Salim be lost forever in a country that is foreign to him? The London Eye Mystery, in my opinion, is a great book. I couldn’t put it down. I found myself reading it every moment of extra time I happened to have on my hands. It had humor, details, suspense, and much more. This book is good for anyone who is looking for curiosity and suspense. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
