Publisher's Summary

When Oliver's great-grandfather's pocket watch is confiscated at school, Chase, a budding detective, vows to help him get it back.

A self-proclaimed authority on paranormal activities, Chase convinces Oliver and his friends, Eduard and Gio, to go along with investigating the curious happenings at their school. 

What begins as the simple task of reclaiming Oliver's pocket watch swiftly turns into a full-fledged investigation into the paranormal happenings at Raven Ridge Academy, as they also face bullies, rivals, and Oliver's annoying little brother. And don't forget Jax, the girl of Oliver's dreams....

As the kids delve further into their investigation, they find themselves caught in a web of trouble with their lives in peril, the fate of the world at stake, and time running out. Will they solve the mystery before it's too late? 

The Dirt Bike Detective is an epic, entertaining tale for the entire family, combining endearing characters, intricate mysteries, humor, and excitement for all ages.

Oliver wants to impress his history teacher so he swipes his great grandfathers pocket watch and from that one bad decision and a bully at school, Oliver’s life changes. Chase, a new student tries to save Oliver from the bully but only makes things worse, the watch comes up missing along with a teacher and Anna “three names” seems to have a crush on Oliver. Then there’s the President ... lots of action!

Douglas Hoover captures the fragility of middle school Kids’s ego, need to fit in but also be special expertly. The inner workings of their minds ~and kid you not you will see yourself as a child through the characters and their predicaments. Hoover builds the characters and their fears realistically and with genuine care.

Vivid descriptions with realistic dialog provides an action-packed listen. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and think listeners of all ages would find this fanciful tale interesting and exciting.

Ramon de Ocampo performed this audiobook professionally and with distinct voices and accents. I found his voice lent the book a little kick as his voice. Rough the characters to life.

Best young adult book I’ve heard in a long time!!!!!

Best listen in a long time

My seven year old granddaughter and I listened to this book together and we both enjoyed it thoroughly. She asked to listen every time we got into the car and listened intently. She is an avid reader so this book was perfect for her. As for me, I found myself laughing out loud at the humor and situations that everyone can relate to. The Dirt Bike Detective is a fun humorous mystery that everyone in the family will enjoy.
Ramon de Ocampo has voices that make every character unique and believable bringing this adventure to life.
