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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Aaron’s efforts would make the Hardy Boys envious as . . . Aaron begins putting together the pieces of an intricate puzzle that will lead him to a court denouement reminiscent of Perry Mason . . . Hotchner has obviously lost none of his writer’s chops. With an appealing protagonist and a feel-good, slightly old-fashioned story, the venerable author’s latest is a diverting exercise in storytelling that is sure to delight his many fans. Booklist
Hotchner's storytelling is fast-paced, his feel for period detail sure-handed, his vision of humanity-facing-adversity persistently sunny, and his regard for the boy's resourcefulness contagious. A brisk, winsome caper. Kirkus
