Reviews
"If you are a fan of The Westing Game, Chasing Vermeer, or The Parker Inheritance, you will love The A&A Detective Agency: The Fairfleet Affair! K.H. Saxton gives readers two whip-smart kid detectives, hands them a mystery worthy of their skills, and mixes in some challenging history that's been hidden for years. It's a delight to see Asha and Alex solve clues and help some clueless adults right a wrong. I can't wait for the next book!"
--Margaret Peterson Haddix, New York Times bestselling author of the Greystone Secrets series

"I absolutely adored this book! The A&A Detective Agency: The Fairfleet Affair is a perfectly paced mystery full of humor and memorable characters. The backdrop of curating art and exhibits for museums, and the ethics involved, is fascinating. Alex and Asha are a smart and funny detective duo, and I enjoyed their friendship as much as I enjoyed figuring out the clues alongside them. I hope this is the first of many mysteries with the A&A Detective Agency!"
--Jennifer Chambliss Bertman, New York Times-bestselling author of the Book Scavenger series and Sisterhood of Sleuths.

""[T]he intricate plot--jam-packed with brain teasers, convoluted twists, and red herrings--keeps readers in suspense while neatly paving the way for a sequel in Saxton's series-starting debut." --Publishers Weekly

"A complex, cinematic, and eclectic page-turner." - Kirkus

"Saxton reveals a knack for constructing a mystery, planting baffling clues, and creating interesting characters of varied ages Tension rises and falls, but the pace of the narrative never falters, and readers will enjoy seeing the puzzle pieces fall into place during the satisfying conclusion. A smart, involving first novel."--Booklist

"Young readers will find The Fairfleet Affair a solid introduction to the genre and will, most likely, look forward to forthcoming Northbrook crimes the A&A duo can solve." --New York Journal of Books

"Full of clues and puzzle pieces to ponder, this complicated mystery will keep readers guessing all the way until the end."--School Library Journal / Teen Librarian Toolbox
