The Vanishing Stair: (Truly Devious Novel)
Stevie’s willing to do anything to get back to Ellingham, be back with her friends, and solve the Truly Devious case. Even if it means making a deal with the despicable Senator Edward King. And when Stevie finally returns, she also returns to David: the guy she kissed, the guy who lied about his identity—Edward King’s son. But larger issues are at play. Where did Hayes’s murderer hide away to? What’s the meaning of the riddle Albert Ellingham left behind? And what, exactly, is at stake in the Truly Devious affair? The Ellingham case isn’t just a piece of history—it’s a live wire into the present. The path to truth has more twists and turns than Stevie can imagine, and moving forward involves hurting someone she cares for.
