Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Case of the Missing Treasure is a mini-mystery, narrated by Daisy about the Detective Society and the Junior Pinkertons solving the mystery of a series of break-ins in London Museums. It was nice to see both societies working together, as previously, they have been up against one another (Detective Society is still the best though!).

There was something about the narrative style that made this book funny to read. Such as when Daisy thinks about her and Hazel’s future Detective Society headquarters, and her internal narrative as she’s narrating. It was nice to read a book narrated by Daisy, as we always see her from Hazel’s perspective, so it was nice to see what goes on in Daisy’s head.

The actual mystery itself was a different case to what the Detective Society usually solve (there was no murder), but it was still a really enjoyable and quick read (I read it in under half an hour!). It was very different as there was no suspect list, or witness interviews this mystery was solved with amazing detecting skills and both societies not being afraid to put themselves in danger to bring justice.

Although I have commented before that in mini-mysteries, I miss the build-up to a big denouement, I feel that this book still had a big finish, as the mystery was prominent all the way through, and the detectives’ actions built up lots of tension in the mystery.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I loved how Daisy narrated this mystery, she seems to be a lot funnier as a person than I realised. It is also really nice how this book directly leads onto Death in the Spotlight – it’s always ironic how Daisy and Hazel are always sent to places to keep them away from murder and trouble but it never quite works out!

Tomorrow, I will be reviewing Death in the Spotlight by Robin Stevens.

Thank you for reading this post.
