Description - Phyllis Wong and the Return of the Conjuror by Geoffrey McSkimming

Someone has sold a number of incredibly valuable first editions of Shakespeare's collected plays at the antique auction house The House of Wendlebury and Chief Inspector Inglis suspects foul play. These rare First Folios are in mint condition, but are not forgeries. Where on earth could they have come from? Has a crime been committed?

Luckily Phyllis Wong is on the case. But when a famously lost Shakespearean play is scheduled to be auctioned, Phyllis suspects villainy which is seeping into today from the seventeenth century. How can she convince Chief Inspector Inglis what's going on? Surely this is something that has to be seen to be believed? As Phyllis herself says: 'Fasten your seatbelts, ladies and gentlemen -- the ride will get bumpy!'

An intriguing story about a young magician with a talent for deduction from the author of the bestselling Cairo Jim Chronicles.
