You thought you knew him You were dead wrongCarver Young dreams of becoming a detective despite growing up in an orphanage with only crime novels to encourage him But when he is adopted by Detective Hawking of the world famous Pinkerton Agency Carver is given not only the chance to find his biological father I grabbed this book from the YA section of the library because the plot seemed amazing and intriguing The plot may still be amazing and intriguing I couldn't force myself to finish it but the writing style was not Reading this book reminded me of years ago when I was reading my first chapter book The chapters are annoyingly short and have abrupt cutoff points; after reading the first 5 or so chapters in about as many minutes I uickly scanned to the back of the book and was not surprised the chapter count was nearly to 100 The plot was also taken on childishly as the mood of mystery and intrigue was ruined by the amount of detail that the author just barfed up leaving me the reader unable to actively take part in the revelry And for a so called mystery there is something wrong if I can think uicker than the main character and there is something wrong if the first puzzle that needed solving was a pair of coordinates coordinates Really Like that hasn't been done beforeI tried to read on but on top of it all the characters were pretty uninteresting peoplePoor effortI recommend this to 4th 7th graders but even then they should be reading the good stuff like The Westing Game for instance

Ripper by Stefan PetrucHe finds himself smack in the middle of a real life investigation tracking down a vicious serial killer who has thrown New York City into utter panic When the case begins to unfold however it’s worse than he could have ever imagined and his loyalty to Mr Hawking and the Pinkertons comes into uestion As the This book was so good Every time I was between commutes when I read I wanted to get back to it It was serious and well crafted the are characters complete and overall the book had a gravity to it that reminded me of books written in the past Definitely feels timeless I worried that the ending would disappoint me as compared with the rest of the book but it wasn't bad at all Really I can't get over how much I enjoyed this book Of course it being YA there are some contrivances but the adults aren't stupid like in other books the kids figure something very important out and when they tell adults the adults reply we figured that out this morning None of the coincidences were eye rolling except perhaps how uickly law enforcement would hear of a crime and show up at the sceneI also love that it's got some historical accuracy and took place in my city I want to head down to City Hall Park asap just to be where the action took place
