Voigt creates an impressive cast of idiosyncratic characters and places Max at the center of a lively narrative featuring plenty of action as well as reflection."
Booklist review, September, 2014:
Readers will eagerly await the revelations of the third installment and hope they won’t have long to wait."
The well-constructed, intertwining threads of Max's growing maturity, the emerging competence of his diversely spirited friends and his recognition of their dynamic interdependence all come satisfyingly together to set up the ultimate case. School Library Journal review, October, 2014:
