Is the fourth time a charm for October and her ghost detective friends? While investigating the cause of the long-dead Tabetha Scott’s death way back in the 1860s, October and the Dead Kids discover that Sticksville, Ontario, served as an endpoint for the Underground Railroad, the secret network by which enslaved people escaped to free states and Canada. But October Schwartz finds herself with more detective work than she can handle after some new musically inclined chums are incriminated in a robbery at a school concert. Fraudulent occult psychics, funeral home ambushes, band wars, the spooky Sticksville fairgrounds, and a history of prejudice all converge in a climactic conclusion that hints a secret society might be behind all manner of catastrophes in October Schwartz’s not-so-boring little town.

October Schwartz and her five deadest pals are back for another crime-solving caper When October Schwartz raises her five dead friends to investigate the cause of Cyril Cooper's death way back in 1783, she expects a dull research-based journey into the lives of Canada's earliest British settlers, the United Empire Loyalists. You'd think our favourite teen detective would have the hang of this solving-mysteries thing by now, but when a ghost pirate appears on the scene, October may be in over her head. The ghost pirate — or someone in a very convincing costume — is thieving key evidence at every turn, beating October to the goods time and again. Worst of all, Valentine's Day is looming, and October's friends seem more concerned about secret admirers than secret conspiracies. As October digs deeper into the mystery, she starts to suspect the pirate may be someone very close to her, just as she uncovers facts regarding her long-missing mom and the meaning behind a cryptic message from a past case. The Dead Kid Detective Agency's third quest is a veritable bouquet of misadventures that weaves the American Revolution, a beyond-chaotic school dance, a historic sea vessel, and a boatload of supernatural shenanigans into one unforgettable madcap adventure.

As the Dead Kid Detective Agency embarks on its second (mis)adventure, October Schwartz and her five deadest friends are back, turning over metaphoric rocks and finding the centipedes underneath. In this latest volume, set against a backdrop of yuletide pandemonium, they discover dark supernatural forces at work in Sticksville and sleuth their way through a mystery involving a blizzard of suffragettes, ice skating disasters, anti-Asian sentiment, and the Titanic. Although the holiday season has descended upon the town like an eggnog rainstorm, October has no time for candy canes or mistletoe. She’s busy dealing with an oddly pleasant new history teacher, her two living friends’ new roles as high school radio DJs, and mysteries to be solved before the year end. October and her ghost friends are hot on the trail of those responsible for Morna MacIsaac’s death in 1914—or as hot as one can be on a 100-year-old trail—when Yumi becomes the target of a sinister harassment campaign at school. Solving dual concurrent mysteries at once won’t be easy, but the intrepid heroine in black eyeliner loves a challenge.

Melissa Hawach has lived every mother's nightmare. Her daughters, six-year-old Hannah and three-year-old Cedar, were kidnapped by their father in the summer of 2006 and spirited away to Lebanon, which was then at war with Israel. This was an estranged husband's attempt to force a custody arrangement on his wife. Even worse for Hawach than the torture of separation and the uncertainty over the safety of her daughters was the discovery that this man had told the children she had abandoned them. In a story that could have been lifted straight from the pages of an espionage thriller, Hawach recounts the extraordinary details of the kidnapping and the remarkable lengths to which she and her cohorts went to get her daughters back. Moving from the small Calgary house that became Hawach's "command post" to the sunny streets of Sydney, Australia-where the girls' father had ostensibly taken them on vacation-to Lebanon's dangerous Hezbollah territory, Hawach and her team (family and friends, private investigators, fixers and ex-soldiers) followed the trail for many months and plotted their strategy to reclaim Hannah and Cedar. The plan relied, ultimately, on a mother's intuition, incredible sums of money and plain good luck. Written with passion and absolute candour, Flight of the Dragonfly offers a harrowing and insightful look into the murky world of international child abductions. Hawach's story will resonate with any parent who has ever lost a child-even for a minute. You were halfway around the world when I realized an awful truth: You had been kidnapped by your father and taken into a Middle Eastern country freshly launched into an ugly war with Israel. Losing you both-and you were gone from my life almost totally for six months-was the worst loss I have ever endured, and I pray I will never have to face its like again. -From the preface to Flight of the Dragonfly.

Pop quiz: What would you do if you had to solve your own murder to get anywhere in death? Maybe if I hadn't slept through my alarm, slammed into Kristin—my high school's reigning mean girl—or stepped in a puddle, destroying my mom's new suede DVF boots (which I borrowed without asking), I wouldn't have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I wouldn't have been pushed in front of that arriving train. But I did, and I was. When I came to, I was informed by a group of girls that I'm dead. And that because I died under mysterious circumstances, I can't pass straight over to the Other Side. But at least I'm not alone. Meet the Dead Girls Detective Agency: Nancy, Lorna, and Tess—not to mention Edison, the really cute if slightly hostile dead boy. Apparently, the only way out of this limbo is to figure out who killed me, or I'll have to spend eternity playing Nancy Drew. Considering I was fairly invisible in life, who could hate me enough to want me dead? And what if my murderer is someone I never would have suspected?
