Crime Through Time: Nabbed! The 1925 Journal Of G. Codd Fitzmorgan

Summary:

Despite horrible weather, G. Codd Fitzmorgan made it safely to Hunter Island, North Carolina. Everyone is here to celebrate Justine Pinkerton's upcoming wedding ... except the groom. When his empty plane lands on the runway, it's time for G. Codd to step forward to help a dear family friend.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The story keeps you guessing until the end ... it is written in the venerable style of the Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, and Hardy Boys series. The illustrations and sidebar factoids are perfect for "antsy" readers and will keep them reading.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Parent Reaction

This was a fun, fast read. Do read Swindled first, though. Otherwise, you won't understand how the Fitzmorgan and Pinkerton families are connected.

Type of Book:
This is the second installment in the historical mystery series set in the early 20th Century.
Educational Themes:

The story is pure mystery, but the historical elements offer opportunities for additional, extra-curricular research about crime-solving techniques; prohibition; magic and illusion; and headlines of the day.
