There's a new detective in town that has earned the respect of local law enforcement agencies for help provided in solving several complicated high-profile cases and assisting a local attorney in getting his clients acquitted of criminal charges - while also providing the District Attorney with valuable information leading to the arrest and conviction of some dangerous criminals.
Up until this point, the services of this brilliant, computer-savvy crime-solver have been limited to police departments, prosecutors, and well-known criminal defense attorney Peter Sharp. The reason for this is because she's an adorable, small Chinese girl name Suzie, the legal ward of attorney Peter Sharp, who has become tired of doing all the work and seeing her lawyer guardian and his bitter ex-wife Myra (the District Attorney) take all the credit for her efforts. So the kid has decided to start working only on a case of her own choosing, which means that it may result in some large financial recovery for its solution.
This book is the story of her second effort, in which she figures out a way to alleviate the restrictions placed upon a kid her size and age from doing the 'legwork' required for proper crime-solving. She finagles all of the usual adults, including attorney Sharp, District Attorney Myra, plus some police that owe her some favors, to do the heavy lifting while she spends her time on the computer, connecting the dots necessary to solve the case and enhance her reputation as being a "mini Sherlock Holmes."
