Meet Randi Rhodes, the world's first ninja detective! Mystery abounds in this delightful new middle-grade series from Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer.
Deer Creek is a small town whose only hope for survival is the success of their Founder's Day Festival. But the festival's main attraction, a time capsule that many people believe holds the town's treasure, has gone missing.
Randi Rhodes and her best friend, D.C., are Bruce Lee-inspired ninjas and local detectives determined to solve the case. Even if it means investigating a haunted cabin and facing mean old Angus McCarthy, prime suspect.
They have three days to find the treasure...the future of their whole town is at stake! Will these kids be able to save the day?
