Since his dad literally did a vanishing act (he's a magician!), Jay Patel has turned detective, and now, with the help of his ghostly grandad, he's on a new case -- a murder in a fancy country hotel where the cause of death appears to be -- soup!
While Jay is surrounded by suspects, Grandad has his own informants -- the ghosts haunting the hotel. But will they catch the killer before it's too ladle?
David Walliams meets Agatha Christie in the soup-er second book of a new laugh-out-loud, weird-and-wacky mystery series for younger readers, by the author of Thorfinn the Nicest Viking.
