Joyce may have written a few mystery stories but that does not make her an expert. She is about to be tested on her street smarts and sense of danger in this great short read from Mr. Laymon.

This Fastback is the first of the Richard Laymon young adult stories that I have read. It short but lots of fun. The plot is simple. A young girl excited about her sale of a detective story finds her self in a real life mystery. Laymon is great here. I am surprised they pitch his novel The Cellar at the end. That is definitely not for kids.
