Then there is the antagonist (The Shadow) who we do not find out the name of until much later in the story. The three main settings are Lizzie’s house (a café) where there are many visitors and it is warm, snug and usually busy. A phan mae tad Lizzie, sy’n actor, bron yn cael ei ladd gan siandelïer sy’n cwympo, mae’r ddwy yn gwybod nad damwain oedd hyn. I bought the physical copy of the book myself as it was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize.

In the end, the characters get on extremely well together and both characters were needed in the process. They are both Black which, personally, I find inspiring as not many books include Black people let alone Black women. Many things happen at once, yet it is still possible to take time to enjoy the story and focus on the attempted murders and the murderer themself. Ond pan maen nhw’n dal llygaid ei gilydd yn y theatr un noson, mae’r ddwy wrth eu boddau o weld merch Ddu arall o’r un oed. One day, during their investigation they find themselves listening to a meeting held by the Sons and Daughters of Africa, and they figured out that the ‘shadow’ was a bounty hunter involved in the slave trade – whose name was John Wilkins.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Her skin was deep brown, almost as dark as mine, and the tight curls of her hair were gathered up in a bun on top of her head. All through the story, the reader also finds clues about African history, slavery and the situation of Black people in Georgian London. The beginning was a little confusing with a large number of characters being introduced and then having little role going forward.

The second book in the thrilling middle grade mystery series, perfect for fans of Robin Steven’s Murder Most Unladylike. Set in late eighteenth century London Drama and Danger is full of mystery with a hint of Hamilton style and Bridgerton fashion but it is inspired by true Black British historical figures. My favourite character was Dido Belle because she is daring, and wanted to go on with the investigation despite it being dangerous.

After completing the book, I felt as if I wanted to know more because the book was left on a cliff-hanger which was, in my opinion, crucial to the story.
