The Ransom Note Blues

(The second book in the Alec Flint, Super Sleuth series)
A novel by

Alec Flint is a super sleuth in training, with one mystery under his belt, and a really great partner named Gina. When Gina's mom, a local newspaper reporter, gets a ransom note at work, Alec and Gina are on the case. The note claims that something belonging to the whole town has been stolen . . . but that something could be anything!

The partners do their best to spend as much time as possible sleuthing, but their schoolwork keeps getting in the way. The entire fourth grade is doing a unit on the abstract artist Jackson Pollock that's sponsored by a distant relative of Pollock's.

Alec and Gina have more important things to worry about than a bunch of paintings with lots of strange paint dripped on the canvas. But are the detectives overlooking an important clue? Could the mysterious sponsor and the abstract paintings have something to do with the ransom note?

Now in a fun, accessible paperback format, the Alec Flint mysteries are reminiscent of classic kids mystery series. So, grab a paintbrush and your super-sleuthing skills and join Alec and Gina for another fun and exciting mystery!
