When Sammy attends a fancy reception at an art gallery (wearing high-tops, of course) she ends up tackling a gun-wielding art burglar who crashes the party. But is he the real criminal? As always, Sammy's instinct guides her through the many layers of the mystery to uncover the real crime and criminal. And this time, the determined detective gets a little help from her gutsy grandmother, who, Sammy realizes, is a person in her own right.
Add a little budding romance for Sammy, and her ongoing struggles with nemesis Heather Acosta, and the result is an entertaining, thoughtful mystery that just might be one of the best Sammy Keyes books to date!

"Tara Sands does an excellent job of narrating the story, infusing Sammy with just enough attitude for a seventh grader. Mystery fans will enjoy the plot and interesting cast of characters." (School Library Journal)
