Ruby Redfort Blink and You Die
author/illustrator: Lauren Child
Ruby Redfort: you can count on her when the ice starts to crack. But now even Ruby Redfort is running scared. A bunch of people want her dead, and worst of all, one of them is on her team. When your name is first on a mastermind’s hit list, do you lock the doors, switch off the lights, and wait for someone else to do something? Or do you get out there and save yourself? If you’re Ruby Redfort, genius code breaker and undercover agent, the choice is clear. In a satisfying series finale, surprises are in store and Spectrum’s backstory comes to light as fans bid goodbye to the beloved kid detective.
“As clues pile up, new dangers loom; Ruby evades them with panache and nifty high-tech gadgetry. . . . Fans of this droll, quirky, and sui generis series won’t be disappointed.” — Kirkus Reviews
