Review of "The Great Mogul Diamond" by G.P. Taylor

Some time has passed since we last saw identical twin sisters Sadie & Saskia Dopple, and their friend Erik Morrissey Ganger.  The sisters have been adopted by Muzz Elliott and Erik is living with Lord Gervez and assisting Dorcas Potts, who has just opened a detective agency.  We begin with Muzz Elliott being blackmailed, and she decides to take a 'vacation' to Cannes, via train and boat.  On the trip a few mysterious things occur and the mystery deepens.  Meanwhile, the twins have managed to contact Erik & Dorcas who follow a different route and meet up with some less than savory characters along the way.  Someone is re-enacting scenes from some of Muzz Elliott's books, with eerie, real-life consequences.

I think this is my favorite book of the series so far. I can recommend this book & series to a pre-teen or teen who can handle some on-the-tense-side scenes, or an adult who wants to try something new (Illustra-Novella). I still think these books require (especially for younger or more impressionable readers) some 'adult-who-has-read-it-too' discussion. Check it out, you might like it!
