Swindled!

(2006)
The 1906 Journal of Fitz Morgan
(The first book in the Crime Through Time series)
A novel by

 
 
Each book in the Crime Through Time series is hosted by a different child member of the famous Fitzmorgan detective family. While the young sleuth unravels a fictional mystery, readers learn about the real historical setting and actual crime-solving methods from the different eras. In sidebar activities, readers take on the role of assistant, helping to crack the case. Breathtakingly suspenseful but never violent and always age-appropriate, the books read like private investigative journals, with photos, maps, news clippings and crime scene sketches.In Swindled!, Fitz is aboard one of those new Continental Express trains, bound from New York for San Francisco. As more and more people take sick from cyanide poisoning, Fitz and a new friend, Justine "the Judge" Pinkerton (of the famous crime-solving Pinkerton family) begin to unravel a wickedly ingenious plot involving a ring of money counterfeiters.
