Eoin Colfer has created another spunky, brainy protagonist in 12 year old Fletcher Moon. Just like Artemis Fowl, Fletcher is smart...and proud of it. Ever since he passed his interenet Private Detective course, Fletcher has been solving schoolyard crimes and flashing his genuine Private Detective badge at anyone who will look.
But when super all-in-pink girly-girl April Devereux hires him to find a lock of a pop star's hair that she claims was stolen by one of the Sharkeys-a family of well-known criminals-everything starts going wrong for Fletcher. His precious badge is taken, he finds a single huge footprint at every crime scene, and he's picked up by the local police for arson when the Devereux playhouse burns down. When Fletcher goes on the run, who becomes his number-one ally? Young Red Sharkey.
This very funny book is a fast paced and hard boiled mystery that will keep Artemis Fowl fans laughing and guessing all the way to the end.
