It’s a chilly morning like any other when Adina takes her puppy Aggie out for an early morning walk… until they see a neighbor’s trash can burning! Adina puts out the fire and puts it out of her mind, but minutes later a nerdy neighbor boy comes knocking, demanding answers. Before Adina knows it, “the game is afoot,” as deduction-obsessed Arthur enlists Adina and Aggie to solve the mystery. (The plot thickens when they discover another burning trash can in the neighborhood.) Clues mount, and with Aggie’s help, they work furiously to unravel the puzzle before someone gets hurt!
A lighthearted cozy teen mystery in the style of Sherlock Holmes, set in the world of Brenda Hiatt’s Starstruck series, written by her husband, Keith Barber.
