The perfect series for kids who loved THE LEMONADE WAR series and are ready for more mysteries

"With wit, cunning, snappy dialogue and superior math skills, "The Red Blazer Girls "represent the best of girl-detectives while still feeling relatable and real. Nancy Drew would be right at home with this group." -- "Huffington Post"'s 15 Greatest Kid Detectives List
When there are mysteries to be solved, the Red Blazer Girls are on the case The discovery of the Ring of Rocamadour has secured the girls' reputation as Upper East Side super-sleuths, bringing many sundry job requests (no mystery too small, right?) and some unwanted attention from crooks. This time the girls must follow a trail of cryptic clues, involving everything from logic to literature, to trace a rare violin gone missing. But nothing is as it appears, and just as a solution seems imminent, the girls find themselves scrambling to save the man who was once their prime suspect.

Bowstrings and betrayal, crushes and codes abound in this suspenseful companion to the Red Blazer Girls' 2009 debut. Michael Beil, a New York City high school English teacher and life-long mystery fan, delivers a middle-grade caper that's perfect for middle-grade readers who have finished THE LEMONADE WAR series and are ready for more advanced mysteries

A good book. Definitely aimed at a younger audience than myself, but still entertaining.

One of the best mystery books I've ever read

Smart, spunky girls solve crimes in New York. Can be enjoyed on its own, but I recommend reading their previous adventure, The Ring of Rocamadour, first.
