You'd think a ghost grandad would be a great sidekick for a wannabe detective. Unfortunately, if there was a 'being a good ghost' exam, Jay’s grandad would fail spectacularly -- he hates walking through walls, he can't touch anything and he's rubbish at haunting.

Since his dad literally did a vanishing act (he's a magician!), Jay Patel has turned detective, and now, with the help of his ghostly grandad, he's on a new case -- a murder in a fancy country hotel where the cause of death appears to be -- soup!

While Jay is surrounded by suspects, Grandad has his own informants -- the ghosts haunting the hotel. But will they catch the killer before it's too ladle?

David Walliams meets Agatha Christie in the soup-er second book of a new laugh-out-loud, weird-and-wacky mystery series for younger readers by David MacPhail, Perthshire based author of Thorfinn the Nicest Viking. Illustrated by Laura Aviñó.
