Jex Malone by C.L Gaber & V.C. Stanely is a story about what happened when Jex went to stay with her estrangled father, a detective, during the summer. She was very reluctant to spend the summer with her Dad as he has been vastly absent from her life so far since her parents divorced.
It was the first time that Jex was up in Nevada for the Summer. She thought that she was certainly going to have the worst Summer this year being stuck with her dad and without her friends. Little did she know that she would have the time of her life, make new friends and even solve a 13 year old case which her dad had been working on for years.
Arriving at her dad’s place, Jex soon got to know the neighbour girl Cissy and her friends. Together the four of them form a secret detective agency and worked together on a high-profile unsolved case of local teen Patty Matthews’ disappearance 13 years earlier.
Even though the case has been classified a “cold case” the girls managed to find new information and even the missing girl Patty in the end.
It has been quite a while since I last read a detective novel. I really enjoyed reading this one that was pitched at a young adult. I love how the plot developed and how the mystery got solved in the end.
I’m certainly getting my tween to read this book himself so that he can enjoy the joys or reading a detective novel.
