“The hottest sleuth to appear in children’s books since Nancy Drew” (The Boston Globe) is back! Don’t miss the second book in the series that’s been described as “a combination of Carl Hiaasen’s Flush and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books” (School Library Journal) and hailed as “nonstop whodunits” (Kirkus Reviews)!
It might have been just a regular Halloween night, but then out of nowhere this skeleton appears and comes charging straight at us.
After the skeleton plows them over, Sammy and her friends look to see what he was running from. That’s when they find a fire starting to take hold in someone’s foyer, and Frankenstein tied to a chair in the living room. Someone’s taking trick-or-treat way too far!
Sammy’s not surprised when her least favorite cop tells her to butt out. But the man under the Frankenstein mask doesn’t want anyone poking around either. And nothing makes Sammy want to look closer than being told there’s nothing to see here. . . .
Praise for the Sammy Keyes series:
“If Kinsey Millhone ever hires a junior partner, Sammy Keyes will be the first candidate on the list. She’s feisty, fearless, and funny. A top-notch investigator!” —New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton
“Sammy is smart-mouthed and hard-hitting . . . the sleuth delights from start to finish. Keep your binoculars trained on Sammy Keyes.” —Publishers Weekly
“The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!)” —Midwest Children’s Book Review
