DSS party thumb

Death Sets Sail is out now – and my publisher Puffin thought you might want to celebrate that fact!

They’ve put together a (socially distanced) party pack to help you and your friends wave goodbye to the series in style. Click here to download everything you need – and if you want to solve an actual (made up!) murder mystery, click here for the Murder at Rivets and Gripps game!

Enjoy – and I hope you and your friends are having fun talking about Death Sets Sail!

I’m very pleased to say that my Behind the Book video, featuring a Q&A, a workspace tour and a reading from the last two chapters of Death Sets Sail, is available to watch NOW on the Puffin YouTube channel. There’s a link below – I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve got a new video on the way! Behind the Book with Robin Stevens will premiere on the Puffin YouTube Channel on Friday 18th September at 6pm BST.
For the rest of September, your prompt will be resolutions. This was suggested by Detective Society member Neve – and it seems like a great choice, since this is the beginning of the school year, a time full of new challenges and big decisions.
I’ve got good news for Scottish fans – I may not be able to come visit you in person this autumn, but I’ll be able to be with you virtually! I’m teaming up with the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour and Book Week Scotland for a week of absolutely FREE events for Scottish schools.
You have until the 6th of September to send all of your questions about the MMU series, The Ministry of Unladylike Activity, Howl the puppy or anything else you might want to know to a special email address that my publisher Puffin has set up: I’m going to be answering my very favourites on a new ‘Behind the Book’ video, premiering on the 18th of September on the Puffin YouTube channel.

  1. Hello Robin,
    This is so cool! I’ve often seen the MMU bunting in bookshops and wondered how to get it- it’s great how we can download it to make our own! All the Death Sets Sail downloads are amazing.

  2. This is so cool Robin! I can’t wait to download the party pack! Also, I am wondering why in the photo there is all the MMU books apart from the first. 😉

  3. Wow this is ace I can not wait, soooooooooooooo going for the DSS bunting and the bookmark. Thanks so much Robin for letting us do this. I might dress up for the occasion as one of my favourite Decetive Sioctey member!!!!!!!!!!! ( Beanie, with her mouse Chuntney🐭) I cannot wait🤩!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Hi Robin this is really cool l made my own death sets sail bunting and posters two weeks ago and me and my family had a death sets sail party.

  5. Hooray! I am so holding that party. Thank you so much for such an amazing series. It has opened so many pathways for me like crime writing and like the daisy Wells quote ‘in a hundred years time people will want to be like Hazel and Daisy.’
    I also found that the books have really brought to the fore the silliness of the stereotype that everything was normal in the olden days. I think that its great that Hazel is Chinese and Daisy is a lesbian and they totaly accept each other for what they are. Detective Society Forever

  6. This is so cool, I cannot wait to try it some time, I am very grateful that you are posting all these activities and puzzles and games, they are so fun!

  7. Cant wait to see if if can do it. I have talked on the spoilers page about DSS but I listened to it on audible as I didnt have it on book and yesterday I had the chance to go into waterstones and get DSS. They had a fair few of your books and as out of me and my sis for last christmas she got the collection (except DSS) so I have finally got a few of my own. I got Death sets sail top marks for murder Murdermost unladylike and death in the spotlight. Sadly they did not have cream buns and crime which I love to put my very problamatic Ds together (everyone wants to be vice especially my BFF and then my twin hard choices) .

    Robin I get attached for series then dont but I forever will love this series

  8. Oooh I’m so downloading the DSS book mark 😀
    And if i had a party I would 100% be daisy wells because I’m kinda like her!
