Half-Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer

12 year old Fletcher Moon (a.k.a Half Moon) is the proud graduate of the Bob Bernstein Academy of Washington, D.C. where over a two year period he took online classes to become a private investigator. He graduated at the top of his class and carries a small leather wallet with a silver-plated detective's badge and laminated ID card to prove it. After studying and memorizing the Bernstein manual and rules for investigating, Fletcher's ready to take on his first real case. All of the proper characters are represented to make this a true PI mystery. There's the snitch - snot-nosed Doobie Doyle. The usual suspect and bad guy - Herod Sharkey (and family). There's the though guy (girl in this case) Bella Barnes. There's the law Principal Quinn and Sergeant Hourihan. Of course this story wouldn't be complete without a pretty (and popular) dame, enter April Devereux. In this case there's also April's pretty little cousin May. Written in an accurate PI style - who, what, where, when and why - this mystery is both fun and hilarious. Now all we need is a crime... see page 2.
