The Nancys

Author(s): R.W.R. McDonald

Fiction General

Tippy Chan is eleven and lives in a small town in a very quiet part of the world - the place her Uncle Pike escaped from the first chance he got as a teenager. Now Pike is back with his new boyfriend Devon to look after Tippy while her mum's on a cruise.


When Tippy's teacher's body is found beside Riverstone's only traffic light, Tippy and her minders form The Nancys, a secret amateur detective club. What starts as a bonding and sightseeing adventure quickly morphs into something far more dangerous...


A wrongful arrest, a close call with the murderer, and an intervention from Tippy's mum all conspire against The Nancys. Regardless of their own safety, and despite the constant distraction of questionable fashion choices in the town that style forgot, The Nancys know only they can stop the killer from striking again.


The Nancys is gripping and glorious, a heart-warming novel for anyone who's ever felt they were on the outside looking in. At its heart it is about the family we make and how we must summon the courage to face the truth, no matter what the cost may be.
