The second in a series of gripping adventure stories, perfect for fans of Enid Blyton.  The friends can't believe their luck when they get the chance to stay in a castle for their Easter holidays.  The castle is everything they had hoped for, with a moat and an ancient burial mound that gives it an air of mystery. But things are not what they seem and a treacherous discovery in the grounds reveals a 300-year-old treasure map.

The race is on. The After-School Detective Club is in pursuit of Ragnar's gold - a hoard of treasure said to have been buried by a Viking warrior and guarded by his demon hound... that is, unless someone else gets there first.



Lucy, Max, Joe and Charlie - The After School Detective Club - are back for another thrilling adventure in The Secret of Ragnar's Gold. Ufford Castle, Suffolk, is the setting for a treasure hunt when the gang find a mysterious box containing a gold coin and a secret code. Will this lead to the Viking Ragner's gold?

From best-selling adult crime author Mark Dawson this has all the fun, mystery and thrill of a crime novel for middle grade readers. Great for reluctant readers Ages 9+ to awaken their interest in reading.
