Alice Jones, by Sarah Rubin

Alice Jones is a good book for anybody who likes a good detective story. The story is gripping and exceptionally amazing. It is a brilliant mystery which keeps you guessing until the end. If you enjoy solving mysteries then this is the book for you. Maths whizz Alice Jones has already solved a mystery or two but when a scientist disappears from a locked room she is confronted with her toughest case yet. Dr. Learner is working on a invisibility suit. Is science behind his disappearance? Bold Alice Jones won’t stop till she knows the truth.

I would give this book 5/5 because it is superb, gripping and does not end too quickly.
