Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Patterson blends the fun of James Ponti’s T.O.A.S.T. mysteries and Stuart Gibbs’s Spy School with a bit of commentary about the complications of policing in the modern era. A good buy for any collection serving young Patterson fans and middle grade action/thriller audiences.” School Library Journal
“There are highlights in Ali’s first case, such as creatively using an immersive video game environment the preteens are addicted to as a way to communicate with Gabe. Ali is a flawed detective, often rushing into danger without thinking, which makes him more likable.” Booklist
“Writing in Ali’s voice with occasional cutaways to third-person chapters that follow Alex, Patterson sprinkles the narrative with pop-culture references even as he takes readers through the detective process.” Kirkus Reviews
