Reviews

The real draws here are the two resourceful leads' solid, realistic friendship, bolstered by snappy dialogue, brisk pacing, andwell-crafted ancillary characters--not to mention behind-the-scenes glimpses ofthe FBI.More escapades are promised in this improbable but satisfying seriesstarter.--Kirkus Reviews "Kirkus Reviews "
Mystery buffs and fans of Anthony Horowitz's "Alex Rider" series are in for a treat. . . . With elements of Alex Rider, James Bond, and Sherlock Holmes stories, this is likely to be popular with mystery and action/adventure fans.--School Library Journal "School Library Journal "
The implications Florian draws from focusing on minute details are lots of fun, and if upon reflec- tion readers realize that Ponti is in authorial control of Florian's brilliance, well . . . it worked for Arthur Conan Doyle, too. EB--BCCB "June 2016 "
What stands out is the portrayal of Florian's and Margaret's intelligence, their close friendship, and athlete Margaret's sports prowess. Refreshingly, the adults aren't portrayed as completely clueless; they are respectful of the kids' crime-solving abilities, even though the preteen sleuths, as they realize themselves, are not infallible. Young readers will enjoy this first caper in a projected series.--Booklist "7/1/16 "
Florian resembles a young Sherlock Holmes, and together he and Margaret use the TOAST technique to prove that things are not always as they first appear. This book will grab readers from the first page with its witty characters and non-stop action. It would be a great read for fans of Chasing Vermeer (Scholastic, 2005).
