Peril on the Atlantic

Hello Malvern Primary School ! 

Are you ready for secrets, sabotage and danger? If so you might like my new book Peril on the Atlantic which is your library’s book of the week!  The story is set on an ocean liner in 1936 and was inspired by my own travels by sea which I talk about at the end of the book.  I would say if you’ve enjoyed the Adventures on Trains series, or Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens, you might like this too.  If you pick it up and have a read I hope you enjoy the voyage!      

Best wishes,  A M Howell.

Waterstone’s website says: Perfect reading for fans of Emma Carroll and Natasha Farrant, the rollicking first instalment of Howell’s maritime adventure series finds young Alice enmeshed in sabotage, espionage and dangerous secrets aboard the Queen Mary. July, 1936. As the Queen Mary sets sail across the Atlantic, Alice can’t wait for the summer of adventure that lies ahead. She’s excited to explore the huge ship, with its shops, animals and even celebrities on board.  But while Alice’s sailor father focuses on winning a prestigious race, she witnesses a shocking attack. Alice and her new friend Sonny start to uncover a dark sabotage plot, and as they investigate gold bars, anonymous notes and lost silk gloves, secrets in their own lives come to the surface.  When fog threatens the boat’s journey, and dangerous enemies show themselves, Alice and Sonny are in their own race to solve all the mysteries unfolding. But what they discover might change both their lives forever.
