Publisher's summary

From Newbery Honor author Rodman Philbrick comes a delicious, fast-paced whodunit about two socially outcast boys who set out to find jewels hidden for a century - and unwittingly flush out a murderer.

In award winner Philbrick's addictive new mystery, Arthur "Bash Man" is the school thug, paid with candy to bully and threaten other students. When genius orphan Darius Drake employs Arthur to help him discover the origin of a suspicious threat, written in blood, they uncover a mystery that involves Darius's estranged grandfather, who was imprisoned for forging evidence in a search for a long-lost diamond necklace worth millions. The boys make the dangerous decision to search for the jewels themselves - and in the process, they discover that the car crash that killed Darius's parents was not an accident at all. Who will be next?

Where are the diamonds? And who is stalking the boys? In his first mystery for children, Philbrick delivers yet another suspenseful, unpredictable tale filled with twists and turns that will leave listeners breathless.

My 8 year old and I loved this one

Great mystery, suspenseful, and didn't dumb anything down while still keeping in the YA genre. Compelling performance and a tight story made for many great winter afternoons over hot chocolate enjoying this one.

It’s a good book

I’m 14 teen but I have been reading this book since I was in the 5th grade and I always love listening to the book and the first time I read this book I was always on the very edge of my seat and I wish that I can read it for the first time again
