Almost thirteen-year-old Gabriel Marx struggles with just about everything, from school, to relationships, to navigating between his divorced parents. He arrives in New York City for his annual summer visit with his attorney father who finds himself caught up in the mystery surrounding the murder of one of his clients. It is not long before Gabe finds himself smack in the middle of the intrigue and more determined than ever to prove himself to his dad.

Gabe encounters various players in the unraveling mystery, learns to trust the friendship of eleven-year-old Alex, and that of the renowned, but now discredited, Professor Phineas Foster. Twists and turns and seeming coincidences reveal previously unknown family history and harrowing choices for Gabe.

Will the children solve the murder? Will their determination lead to the truth? Will the professor be vindicated? Will the scoundrels who sought to corrupt the professor's lifelong work be brought to justice?

What a fantastic book! I read with my daughter and was as excited as her to see "what happens next". We both loved it and highly recommend it.

Enter the world of almost 13 year old Gabe as he tries to solve a confounding mystery and you will be instantly captivated. Enjoyable reading for adult and middleschooler alike. Teachers- this is an excellent piece of literature for teaching on so many levels! Compliments for the high quality publishing and printing of this book. Easy on the aging eyes, and for kids whose eyes fatigue while reading. Thank you for a wonderful book!

A wonderful story for both young and old! I found that I could not put this book down yet did not want it to end! Beautifully written in such a way that the reader will continually enjoy each page! Perhaps we are looking at a series or a screenplay?
