Dinah Galloway, fresh from her adventures with spies and burglars, is back in a hilarious new adventure. Chosen for a lead role in the musical version of Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone, eleven-year-old Dinah, amateur detective, budding singer and owner of a huge appetite, is once again embroiled in a mystery that puts her in peril and offers plenty of opportunities for humor and good food. When Dinah wins the part of Coretta Cuff, a singing detective, in an adaptation of what many consider the first detective novel, she finds that all is not as it seems around the theater. The producer, trying to unload a bunch of knockoffs of his priceless ring, the famed Murdock Moonstone, has orchestrated a publicity stunt with the actual ring in attendance on opening night. Dinah is convinced that there is a plot to steal the gem. Armed with her freckled nose for mystery and her unerring sense of right and wrong, Dinah attempts to uncover the culprit before the curtain rises.
