AMAZING BOOK! My daughter is in 6th grade and she is homeschooled, she really enjoyed reading this book. Highly recommend to middle schoolers.

I have three boys 11-15 and finding a book they all like is sometimes a challenge This series is great! My 15-year-old said, “I actually like it better than Hardy Boys because it tells me currents laws about technology that I didn’t know.” My reluctant 13-year-old picked it up without any prodding and that’s not an easy feat.

Great “clean” page turner! My son was hooked after the first three chapters and kept asking me to read more… Fast forward three hours and we were done! When you read a book in one sitting, you know it is a good one.

A superb and rip-roaring mystery read, and good clean fun! Forbes nails it, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series after reading Book 1.

Virtues of kindness, leadership, compassion, responsibility, loyalty, courage, diligence, perseverance, loyalty and service are characterized throughout the book. I recommend all elementary and junior high school libraries should have a copy of this book.

The writing style of the author transports the reader to this wonderful area of the country to join in the adventures of four young teens. Right from the start we are faced with the question: “What would you do if something unexpected and unplanned happened to you?” Very well done, indeed Mr. Forbes.

I stumbled across the author and his series on Instagram and had to order the first book! Fun characters, good storyline too, easy reading. Best for ages 11 and up.

Great book for kids and no worry for parents! I bought and read this book with my grandson in mind. Great series for young readers and for parents to read aloud to their children. You will not be disappointed.

There are many twists and turns that I did not see coming. The use of tech gadgets is very effective. The author is a good storyteller and does not ‘dumb down’ his writing for his target audience.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It had me hooked into the mystery from start to finish, and the four sleuths really work well together as detectives. I’m very excited to read book two.

Great characters, high tech interest in solving crime, and a clean moral approach in addressing each challenge the young investigators come up against. This series is it!

A friend recommended this series. I was looking for gifts for a couple of grandkids, & since I love mysteries myself, decided to download this first one. Couldn’t put it down. I’m hooked, & needless to say, ordered the whole set for the grandkids. And I’ll be reading the rest myself.
Chris’ comments, on Amazon
Barry, he LOVED it! My son is almost 14 and enjoys reading but most books are historical fiction or non-fiction. I struggle to find fun reads, which I feel are important. He carried your book everywhere, reading in any spare moments. His favorite series was Michael Vey which he loved – and he said this was equally exciting and he can’t wait for book 2 – which I’m ordering today and book 3 for his birthday.

I enjoyed reading the first volume of this new series. Although aimed at younger readers I believe mystery fans of all ages will like this book. There are many twists and turns that I did not see coming. It is not predictable or boring in any way. The use of tech gadgets is very effective. The author is a good storyteller and does not ‘dumb down’ his writing for his target audience.

Perfect series for our 7th grader! I’m thrilled to have come across this perfect series for my 13-year old son this summer. We purchased the entire set! They are easy, but captivating reads and he is enjoying them very much. He loves that they are based in his home state of Arizona too.
