A detective story with as many laughs as there are twists and turns, from award-winning author Ted Staunton!

In the beginning, it was simple: I wanted to be a detective, and I needed something to detect . . .

Thirteen-year-old Duncan lives with his unconventional bohemian aunt. She's determined to give him an expensive private education, even though Duncan isn't particularly interested in school. He wants to be a detective like the ones in the

World's Best 100 Detective Stories, which he reads when he should be studying

Fortunately for Duncan (and readers!), he gets something to detect in the first chapter of this funny crime mystery. Full of twists and turns and laugh-out-loud adventure, this highly entertaining story will have readers wondering if they've solved the mystery (and most likely they haven't) until the last page turn.

Ted Staunton ratchets up the fun in this fast-paced romp, loosely based on a true story from Texas in the early 2000s.
