Oz and his friend Rusty find themselves in a strange new world when Oz discovers a body in his family's restaurant, and Dave, Oz's brother, is arrested for murder. Oz's mother is in France, and the list of adults Oz can turn to is short. He and Rusty embark upon their own investigation since the police seem to think it's an open and shut case. What connection did the murdered man have with Dave, and with Oz's dad, once a scientist at Los Alamos, uncovered as a spy, and dead before Oz was born? Tangled threads create a convincing and interesting mystery for upper elementary and early junior high readers, and the novel's setting, Santa Fe, is fun for those of us who have spent lots of time there! Thanks for the SJC mention! I hope this author keeps writing.
