"A sure pleaser for Cam Jansen grads or anyone fond of knotty, lightweight capers solved with brainpower (and a little luck)."—Kirkus "Eddie Red is bound to be a series that will appeal to fans of fast-paced mysteries" —School Library Journal "This is a strong start to a promising new series, and as Eddie would say, it's uber-cool." —Booklist "In Wells's lighthearted, voice-driven debut novel, first in a planned series, Eddie never truly seems in danger, but his audacity and persistance, a clever mystery that unfolds atmospherically, and Calo's sly pencil portraits result in a fun sleuthing story." —Publishers Weekly
