Review

"With her mix of homespun humor, well-plotted mystery, and delicious characterization . . . Turnage's tale is full of heart."--Kirkus, starred review

"Another rewarding adventure . . . narrated by Mo in her distinctive, imaginative voice. The writing lulls you with laughter, then occasionally blindsides you with unexpected tenderness."--Booklist, starred review

Well crafted, with fast pacing; readers will gallop through the nonstop action to a satisfying conclusion. A must-read for fans of the first two volumes, and a rewarding adventure all on its own.--School Library Journal

Turnage's rich voice, abundance of heart, and wicked sense of humor handle the dynamics of the town with verve...One can only hope that this is not the end of this clever, sweet, laugh-out-loud funny series.--VOYA

When Dale's father, Macon, is accused of breaking out of jail. . .Does Mo. . .follow her gut and hunt down Macon, or does she relinquish power to Dale and support his conviction that his father is innocent? Friendship prevails in this fine novel, with a number of unobtrusive acts of kindness flourishing throughout. There's a complexity to the characters, from mean-as-a-snake Macon to drop-dead-handsome Lavender, all carefully developed throughout the series, creating a terrific read.--Horn Book

A rousing tale of action, adventure, and intrigue....So sit back and enjoy a well-told yarn that is sure to please readers of all ages.--SLC

Book Description

Mo and her best friend Dale - cofounders of the (probably) world-famous Desperado Detective Agency - know trouble as sure as they know the streets of Tupelo Landing, NC. But when they head to court as star witnesses against Dale's no-good daddy - confessed kidnapper Macon Johnson - they face a new brand of trouble.
