As a children's librarian I read a considerable amount of Juvenile fiction. In my other life I read a lot of mystery novels. This book was amazing from both perspectives.
Eoin Colfer (sounds like Owen, if you've ever wondered) has really nailed the voice and tone of a hard-boiled private detective, trapped in the body and world of a twelve year old kid. The first person narration is brilliant and sarcastic with many witty quips and comebacks.
The mystery itself is a well written, crazy, yet within the realm of possibility, puzzle that will keep readers guessing with dead ends and plenty of Red herrings. But all the clues are therefor the reader and they do add up in the end.
This was a pure delight for me. I think children and adults who enjoy a good mystery and a bit of humor will very much enjoy this novel.
It is read by Sean Patrick Reilly with his wonderful Irish voice. He is a clear and expressive reader who captures the voice of 12 year old Fletcher. A real joy to listen to.
