Twelve-year-old Aaron Broom is protecting his father’s car from repossession when he witnesses a jewelry store robbery gone wrong. To Aaron’s shock, his father, a struggling salesman in the wrong place at the wrong time, is fingered as the prime suspect in the murder. Aaron—precocious, plucky, not a little naïve—must seek out gangsters, diamond dealers, bootleggers, and street kids in order to prove his father’s innocence. In his search for justice, Aaron draws upon the resources of a world-weary paperboy, an aspiring teen journalist, and a kindly lawyer. As they dig into the details of the case, these unconventional detectives reveal a cover-up that goes much deeper than a jewelry-store heist gone sour. Through it all, Aaron’s optimism and resourcefulness shine through. Hotchner’s latest is a rollicking ride through St. Louis at its lowest, as seen through the eyes of his most lovable narrator to date.

Author Bio: A. E. Hotchner

A. E. Hotchner (1917–2020) fully intended to be a career lawyer but after two stultifying years practicing law, he escaped into the Air Force, vowing never to look at another Corpus Juris Secundum. In between selling salad dressing, he wrote books, plays, musicals, and scores of television dramas. In 1999, Washington University conferred on him an honorary Doctor of Letters, but he was proudest of the fact that he was crowned marbles champion of St. Louis in the sixth grade.
