Jacket.aspxFletcher Moon, a.k.a. Half Moon, is a twelve year old detective.  His prized possession is his real detective badge earned through two years of study in a real detective course.  When his badge is stolen, he will stop at nothing to get it back.  Breaking every rule in the book, Half Moon embarks on a very personal investigation that quickly turns south.  He is nearly killed by an unknown assailant who beats him to within an inch of his life and then frames him for an arson he did not commit.

Now Half Moon is a fugitive from the law on the run with his prime suspect, and he has only 24 hours to solve this case and get his life back!

Eion Colfer, author of the Legends of… and Artemis Fowl series, never disappoints.  In Half-Moon Investigations, Colfer delivers a gripping tale of intrigue and mystery. This gumshoe detective novel is a rollercoaster of twists and turns, a whodunit that will keep readers guessing until the very end!  Everyone is a suspect, and anything could be a clue.  Readers should expect the unexpected because things are not always as they seem in this little Irish town.  Everyone has a secret to uncover and no one is who they seem to be.  Readers who enjoy a good mystery will not want to put this one down.

Genre: Mystery  •  Interest Level: grades 4-8
