Life looks up for sisters Meg and Mia when new neighbours move in next door to their home in Daisy Drive. They find a new friend in Priya, but the girl next door has a box of secrets. Yet no secret Priya shares with her new friends makes them more curious than the story told in the newspaper in which she has wrapped them. By a suspicious coincidence this concerns a man who went missing from Aloe Ridge, the very seaside town in South Africa where they live. Even the police are still not sure whether he was a victim of a crime or a suspect, himself. What Meg, Mia and Priya do not suspect are the risks and riddles into which the trail will lead them when, dubbing themselves the Daisy Drive Detectives, they determine to solve the case.
