This Stevie Diamond Mystery is a compelling and fast-paced adventure to keep readers guessing until the very end. Stevie and Jesse are in the thick of things once again. While they're helping Gertie, their 72-year-old neighbor, prepare for her big movie, something goes missing --- Gertie! The Diamond and Kulniki Detective Agency has another mystery to solve, and suddenly there are more exciting things than day camp to think about.
