Reviews

"Barrett plunges right into the action from the first sentence, giving fans of classic mysteries exactly what they want: thrills, chills, a plethora of suspects and plenty of red herrings... A fun series continues unabated." --Kirkus Reviews

"Solid detective work, and a zippy pace make this a nice choice." --Booklist

"Barrett throws in enough red herrings as well as solid clues to keep ardent fans of the genre turning the pages until the surprise denouement... Fans of Ron Roy's popular "A to Z Mysteries" series (Random) will delight in graduating to this series." --School Library Journal
