Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The third in a contemporary series just like Encyclopedia Brown, but with a little more brawn, and a lot more brainteasers!


Super-sleuth Charlie Collier is thinking about taking a hiatus from his detective agency to play a private eye in a school play—but when some real robberies stump the police, Charlie realizes that detective work really is his true calling.

He and his sidekicks Henry and Scarlett team up with Charlie’s grandma and her old buddy Eugene to set a trap for the robber—one they’re sure will catch him. But the trap doesn’t work out quite the way they thought it would, leaving Charlie, Henry and Scarlett in grave danger.

This high-stakes adventure is filled to the brim with brainteasers. Charlie can solve them all—can you?

“Brisk and absorbing, author John Madormo’s debut tips its fedora to hard-boiled classics with its ‘sixth-grader meets Sam Spade’ narration.”—FamilyFun Magazine
 
“With mysteries to solve, codes to decrypt, and an extended cast of colorful characters in tow, this first in a new series offers lots of mystery fans to chew on and will leave them hungry for the next installment.”—Booklist
