The Sign of the Black Dagger Summary

The Sign of the Black Dagger by Joan Lingard

One day, Will and Lucy's dad just ... vanishes. They have no idea why he's disappeared until a creepy stranger reveals their dad was keeping a BIG secret. Then there's the second clue: an old diary they find hidden in the walls of their Royal Mile house, with a sinister black dagger on it. Will and Lucy must solve a mystery that's over two hundred years old if they want to find their dad and bring him home. But can they find the answers in time to rescue him? Award-winning author Joan Lingard weaves a fast-paced mystery set in and around Edinburgh's Royal Mile. The story alternates between Will and Lucy, searching for their dad in the present day, and their ancestors William and Louisa, struggling to save their own father while following the sign of the black dagger and uncovering a plot to kill a French aristocrat.

The Sign of the Black Dagger Reviews

'This book is a joy to hold as a great deal of care has gone into its production, and even more of a joy to read. Joan Lingard has a stellar reputation and the moment you start reading the door closes and you are in the story.' -- Books for Keeps 'This book is quite mysterious, yet adventurous as there is detective work. For me it really felt like I was there watching the action.' -- Kobe, Currie Community High pupil, Teen Titles 'I think the characters were interesting and I liked the connection between the two time-frames... This book would appeal to readers who like a bit of adventure.' -- Samuel, Currie Community High pupil, Teen Titles
