    An Accidental Adventure Series Jonny Duddle and C. Alexander London Twins Oliver and Celia live in the Explorers Club with their father, a famous explorer, but they’d rather watch TV than travel the globe. Accidents happen, though, and for these two, those accidents always end in adventure. What this book also proves is that you can write a good crime novel without killing off half the local population and incorporating the worst of crimes. The central incident of this novel is an almost mundane seeming accidental drowning of a local teenager that is almost but not quite closed as just that rather than being properly investigated.
