Bestselling Murder Most Unladylike author Robin Stevens turns to homage, meanwhile, in The Guggenheim Mystery (Puffin), both a tremendous art-theft whodunnit and a loving tribute to the much-missed author Siobhan Dowd. This sequel to Dowd’s The London Eye Mystery scoops up Ted, a rigid thinker with a gift for analysis, his tempestuous sister Kat and Salim, his cousin, with an assured and gentle hand, setting them down in New York City, where Ted and Kat’s Aunt Gloria is a curator at the Guggenheim art museum. When a Kandinsky is stolen and Gloria is arrested, though, it’s up to the young detectives to clear her name … Stevens’s deft, philosophical writing lends itself perfectly to her continuation of Dowd’s work.
