The last time William Shakespeare and Virginia went missing Cassie found them sitting on a coiled hose behind the fire station, and Dad called her ‘Cassie Andersen, Peacock Detective’.

But the clues lead her in an unexpected direction and Cassie finds herself investigating a confusing mystery about her family.
