Book Summary

First they ventured deep under New York to save the city itself.

Then things got personal as the Irregulars ventured into a haunted mansion in Chinatown to uncover an evil twin.

With a dash of romance, a fresh take on good manners, and loads of butt-kicking bravery, Kiki, Betty, Ananka and the other Irregulars sharpen their amazing skills in this highly anticipated new adventure.

Media Reviews

"Thematically, this volume is all about being true to oneself and recognizing that genius comes in many forms. Happily, this 'lesson' comes wrapped in sheer delight. Here's hoping that this latest volume attracts droves of new devotees for some of the coolest girls in fiction." - Kirkus

"Crushes, tragic love lost, and real danger make for a strong third entry in the Kiki Strike series." - Booklist

"That the girls like doing battle and solving mysteries, and that they are depicted as being dedicated to strengthening their individual talents in order to strengthen the group, makes this mystery series unusually smart and original. Ages 11 to 18." - VOYA

Author Information

Kirsten Miller Author Biography

Kirsten Miller (born 1973) works in advertising in New York City and is the author of the Kiki Strike series and The Eternal Ones. In 2001, the front lawn of a Manhattan nursing home collapsed to reveal an underground room, giving Miller the idea for the first book of the Kiki Strike series, set in the underground tunnels and rooms beneath the city. She created Kiki Strike and the Irregulars (named after Sherlock Holmes' Baker Street Irregulars) to explore these secret passageways. Kirsten is also co-author of a young adult novel, Nightmares! with Jason Segel.
