OLDER FICTION
Johnson, Maureen

The Vanishing Stair

(2) YA Truly Devious series. In this absorbing continuation of Truly Devious, amateur gumshoe and anxiety-sufferer Stevie Bell is still trying to solve both the eighty-year-old cold case at Ellingham Academy and her classmate's recent murder. As Stevie continues her investigation, Johnson judiciously doles out some satisfying partial answers to the historical case while (presumably) saving the big reveals for the next installment. This fulfilling second volume will gratify serious mystery fans.
