Product Details


As addictive as your favorite video game. I couldn’t put it down.“-Adam Gidwitz, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm

Humor, believable characters, and adventure…keeps readers in suspense to the end. A winner for mystery enthusiasts.”-Kirkus Reviews

In this clever debut, Markell takes readers on a clue-filled adventure…[and] maintains an energetic, entertaining balance of character-driven narrative and tricky challenges.“-Publishers Weekly

Markell’s highly entertaining debut novel…is a well-paced read with fully realized and likable characters,…[and] should have strong appeal to gamers, fans of video game-based stories, and reluctant readers.”-SLJ

“This book will appeal to a wide audience. Readers who enjoyed Schreiber’s Game Over, Pete Watson will enjoy the video game component; fans of Fitzgerald’s Under the Egg will enjoy reading more about the Monuments Men; detective story aficionados will revel in the inclusion of The Maltese Falcon story. This is a great book to hand to just about any middle grade reader.“-YA Books Central
