"Lyall's debut is a winner." --Publishers Weekly. "What's with the get-up? Is that the company uniform or something?" "This? All P.I.s wear a trench coat." "Dude, that's a brown bathrobe." I shrugged and straightened out my sleeves. "First rule of private investigation, Ivy: work with what you've got." Twelve-year-old Howard Wallace lives by his list of rules of private investigation. He knows more than anyone how to work with what he's got: a bathrobe for a trench coat, a makeshift office behind the school equipment shed, and not much else -- least of all, friends. So when a hot case of blackmail lands on his desk, he's ready to take it on himself . . . until the new kid, Ivy Mason, convinces him to take her on as a junior partner. As they banter through stakeouts and narrow down their list of suspects, Howard starts to wonder if having Ivy as a sidekick -- and a friend -- is such a bad thing after all.

When Howard Wallaces' two best friends move away and move on to other friendships, Howard makes himself over into a private eye. Soon he's solving crimes in middle school until the new girl, Ivy, comes along and asks to get in on the action as a partner. Howard and Ivy work on solving the big case of who stole the student council cheques. It's a twisty, turny mystery, but the two detectives work together and come up with a solution. A great start to a funny series by Canadian author, Casey Lyall.
