In The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd, Ted’s cousin, Salim, mysteriously disappears while riding the famous London Eye (it’s like a huge ferris wheel), and the whole family is frantic! Ted thinks he spontaneously combusted but Aunt Gloria thinks that he has been kidnapped. Even the police can’t crack the case. So Ted, whose brain functions a little differently then most people’s, and his big sister, Kat, decide to put their aside their fighting to work together as detectives. They follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate search to find Salim while time ticks dangerously by. What goes up must come down…right?
