Twelve year Ted Sparks, fresh from solving The London Eye Mystery, finds himself embroiled in another puzzle, this time in New York City.
While visiting his aunt Gloria, who works at the Guggenheim Museum, a priceless piece of artwork is stolen.
Gloria is suspected and eventually hauled in by the police. Convinced she's innocent, Ted, along with his cousin Salim and his sister Kat, scour the Guggenheim for clues that will set her free.
As they cross people off their suspect list, time is running out for Gloria. Ted must use all of his sleuthing prowess to crack this mystery!
I really enjoyed this novel, it was a fast paced read with some great twists and turns.
This novel has been shortlisted for The Bookling, the book award that we host every year at the high school that I work at. I purchased six copies and book-talked them in one library lesson. After talking about it all six copies were borrowed. Stevens has a real skill for writing mysteries and drawing you into the world of Ted, who runs on a slightly different voltage than everyone else.
It's a great novel about teamwork, believing in yourself and standing up for what's right. I know it's going to be hugely popular in our library. I recommend it for ages 11 and up!
