Stevie Diamond and her friend Jesse have a thief to catch. A thousand dollars is missing from her mother’s apartment and although there are lots of suspects, there aren’t very many clues. A worthy challenge for Stevie Diamond, Detective! Set in Vancouver, the very first Stevie Diamond Mystery is a funny and entertaining read.
Stevie is another resourceful character. She gets into scrapes, which are humorously written, then gets herself out again.
How Come the Best Clues are Always in the Garbage? Is a fast-paced read combining mystery à la Encyclopedia Brown and The Great Brain with contemporary issues.
