Summary
Phyllis Wong, a clever and resourceful young magician and amateur sleuth, finds herself embroiled in a mystery nearly as old as time when she discovers one of her great-grandfather's conjuring secrets! Someone has sold a number of incredibly valuable first editions of Shakespeare's collected plays at the antique auction house The House of Wendlebury and Chief Inspector Inglis suspects foul play. These rare First Folios are in mint condition, but are not forgeries. Where on earth could they have come from? Has a crime been committed? Luckily, Phyllis Wong is on the case. Having recently discovered the secret of Transiting, she travels back to Shakespeare's day to find out who is responsible. But when a famously lost Shakespearean play is scheduled to be auctioned back in the 21st Century, Phyllis suspects villainy. How can she convince Chief Inspector Inglis what's going on? Surely this is something that has to be seen to be believed? Phyllis Wong, that keen young magician with a talent for sleuthing and getting to the bottom of the strangest mysteries, is back!
