There are no dead bodies in this story.

Listen, we're kids. Murders don't come our way all that often. This is about a missing violin. Okay, not so exciting, but take it from me, it's a pretty good whodunit all the same.

Angelo Martinelli, also known as The Angel, is on the job. He must find the famous Emma Tan's violin before it's too late. There's a lot at stake...

The name's Martinelli, Angelo Martinelli. Most people call me Angel. I'm a crime fighter. One place I didn't expect to find it was backstage at the Junior Popstar Quest. Yeah, I know showbiz is full of backstabbers, but these were nine and ten year olds! 'Funny things can happen at auditions,' Emma told me. She never said a truer word. No kidding. Sabotage and dirty dealings in a national popstar quest sends Angel and the CASE-Breakers backstage and under cover.

Muck-Up Day

Category: 
Crime Fiction

People who claim most accidents happen in the home have forgotten what school is like. Take it from me, most of them make the average suburban house seem about as dangerous as a padded cell. It's a miracle there aren't more deaths and disasters. At my school, Paradise Park, accidents happen more often than you'd believe possible.

But if I was planning a real crime in Paradise, there's one day of the year I'd choose. A day when students get away with murder. Muckup Day.

Not a pretty sight. Not a pretty situation. But when you're a crime fighter, things seldom come pretty.

The name's Martinelli. Angelo Martinelli. Most people call me Angel. I haven't always wanted to fight crime. Some days I think it's easier just to write about it. (I've got a certain talent in that direction.) Saddle old Sherlock Holmes with an Italian mother and see how many cases he'd crack.
