In a city where candy is a crime and biscuits have been banned, Nelle Faulkner is a twelve-year-old private detective looking for her next client.

So when a notorious candy gangster asks for her help, Nelle is on the case.

Swept into a secret world of sweet smugglers and chocolate crooks, can Nelle and her friends find a way to take the cake? Or will they come to a sticky end…

WHAT THEY SAY

“Lavie Tidhar has turned his mad imagination on the world of the school playground and the result is hilarious, insightful and terrifying all at once.” – Ben Aaronovitch, best-selling author of the Rivers of London series.

REVIEWS

“The tone is as hard-boiled as a cough drop. The jokes sizzle like Space Dust. Candy is a treat.” – The Financial Times

“Perfectly pitched… a subversive children’s story… The end result is a novel that for all its joyous sense of fun still packs a surprising emotional and philosophical punch… tied together by Tidhar’s wonderful character work and his excellent prose.” – Fantasy Faction

“It’s a brilliant book and well done.” – Georgia, 8
