"The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)" -Midwest Children's Book Review Sammy thought she'd seen all the weirdness her town had to offer-and then she met Justice Jack, Santa Martina's very own superhero. Well, really he's just a guy in spandex and a mask who rides around town on a dirt bike, hoping to find some crime to fight. The old folks in town think he's wonderful. So wonderful that they've asked him to track down Sammy's neighbor Mrs. Wedgewood, who seems to have disappeared-along with a lot of other people's cash. Sammy's friends think Justice Jack is funny and cool. Billy Pratt's even auditioning to be his sidekick! But Sammy thinks he's kind of . . . lame. He's more of a showstopper than a crime stopper. And when a real mystery comes along, Sammy finds herself right in the middle of it. . . . The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father.

Professional reviews

"Tara Sands's distinctive narration shows a deep understanding of Sammy Keyes, the multidimensional heroine of this series. Sands is attuned to Sammy's empathy as the young investigator tries to determine whether an eccentric crime fighter in her town is a fake and help her BFFs untangle their relationship problems. Sands's rich portrayal of Sammy's bright and inquisitive nature shines as the middle-school detective seeks a missing woman and the cash that's disappeared with her. Despite the story's many characters, Sands's portrayals are individual and complex, and she deftly transitions between them. In addition, she conveys the author's sly ironic humor and the story's high-speed pacing. New listeners will join in easily, and Sammy's fans will love seeing how she's changing and growing. S.W.
