Publisher's Summary

When tragedy strikes close to home, Mickey Bolitar and his loyal new friends - sharp-witted Ema and the adorkably charming Spoon - find themselves at the center of a murder mystery involving their friend Rachel. Now, not only does Mickey have to continue his quest to uncover the truth about the Abeona Shelter and the Butcher of Lodz, he needs to figure out what happened to Rachel - no matter what it takes.

Mickey has always been ready to sacrifice everything to help the people he loves. But how can he protect them when he’s not even sure who - or what - he’s protecting them from?

    "Better and better"

    So Mickey*s life seems to be moving forward with some good relationship s . I am glad to see some complexity to his story and not just angst and teenage drama. The plot is more than a bit of a stretch, but it has value in it's reflections on good vs evil and truth vs lies. Great job! Keep it coming!

    "Page Turner"

    Loved the transition from Book 1 into the second. At times, the charcter, who is 14, comes across as way too mature for this years. Other than that, a page turner.

    "Kind of Slow Until the End"

    The narrator is a good choice for series; he has a youngish voice that fits Mickey Bolitar. This story seemed like it took forever to set up, and that the main storyline was rather weak. Even so, there were several surprises and twists that made it worthwhile. Chief Taylor in particular is a bit of a chameleon.

    "Best of the Series"

    I got my books mixed up and listened to Book 3 before Book 2. However, This book really was necessary in order to understand Book 3. I will probably listen to book 3 again. I really liked this book in comparison to the other two. It has some real plot twists, particularly in explaining the death of Rachel's mom. It was logical and advanced the story a great deal. I do find it a little boring how Mickey continues to say he simply will not lie, no matter who the truth hurts. I don't find that to be particularly realistic, but the author needs it for the story to move in the right direction. I have listened to better series, but I still would recommend this one to people who are not looking for particularly deep plots.
