REVIEWS: "This is a fantastic read for young adults, teens, or anyone who wants to look back to our teenage years looking for a good mystery to solve." - Amazon Reviewer "This is a fun exciting read!" - Amazon Reviewer A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: I designed this mystery book series for teens, middle-grade and young adult readers. These are intelligent, well-written mystery and suspense stories, starring a pair of real teen heroes. The clues are laid out as challenges for the reader to solve, and each book is grounded in morality. Originally, I thought they would be good mystery books for boys, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover how much girls also liked them. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. If so, please leave a review, or shoot me an email. I always love hearing from my readers.
