Truly Devious 3-Book Box Set
Books | Juvenile Fiction / Mysteries & Detective Stories
Bestselling author Maureen Johnson's Truly Devious trilogy is a hilarious and inspiring whodunit that weaves together the story of a cold case from 1936 and the story of teen sleuth Stevie Bell in the present. The Truly Devious box set includes all three paperbacks in the series and is perfect for gift-giving and binge reading. The Truly Devious case--an unsolved kidnapping and triple murder that rocked Ellingham Academy in 1936--has consumed Stevie for years. It's the very reason she came to the Academy. But after she arrives, more students turn up dead. Teen detective Stevie is on the case until she solves every mysterious death--from the past and the present. Praise for Truly Devious: "Parallel mysteries unfold with cleverly written dialogue, pate-turning brilliance, and a young sleuth as captivating as Hercule Poirot." --USA Today "The Agatha Christie-like ecosystem pairs with lacerating contemporary wit. A multilayered, modern detective story." --The New York Times Book Review Praise for The Vanishing Stair: "Take it from the world's most impatient reader: If the Truly Devious series is basically one long mystery book, The Vanishing Stair is middle part so enjoyable you won't even want to skip to the end." --Entertainment Weekly Praise for The Hand on the Wall: "A richly satisfying, Poirot-like ending for Johnson's inspired and inspiring teen sleuth." --Kirkus Reviews

"Some of these characters are so questionable I swear"
"Loved the whole series. Read the whole series within 2 weeks"
"My sister and I just started this series. We are annotating as we go. Our first time doing this and are having so much fun. "
"I love the characters and the representation. The mystery draws you in, and it gets more complex with each book in the series. It does not contain much romance, which is different, but enjoyed. Would recommend to anyone who likes mysteries and dreams of living in a boarding school. 10/10"
"This is an AMAZING series! I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but it is so incredibly good! Maureen Johnson’s writing is so good and you can see how much thought she puts into it when writing. I definitely recommend this series!!"
