This book is the sequel to the London eye mystery. It is about how Ted Spark goes to stay with his Aunt Gloria, who works at the Guggenheim Museum, and cousin Salim in New York.
He is not sure he likes New York at first, but when he enters the Guggenheim Museum he finds himself in a world of interesting shapes and patterns. It’s unusual and he likes that as his brain runs on a different operating system to most people.
Then an extremely valuable painting is stolen and Aunt Gloria is arrested. It looks like it’s up to Ted and his big sister, Kat, to solve the case and find the painting…
I would recommend this book to fans of mysteries, particularly those who have enjoyed Robins other series, Murder Most Unladylike and the original London Eye Mystery book by Siobhan Dowd.
It is a perfect read for 8 year old readers and up.
