    E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineArthur Bash is a big kid who will menace anyone for a candy bar. He's used to protecting others from the annoying, geeky Darius Drake, so he's surprised when Darius wants to hire him. There's a spooky house by the Stompanado housing development on Rutgers Road, and Darius has gotten a message, written in blood, from that address. It reads "Who killed Darius Drake?" He wants Arthur's back up to investigate. When the boys go into the house, they meet Vincent [...]

    ARC review from EdelweissRodman Philbrick knows how to write to his readers. His characters are memorable and sweetly developed, but not too sophisticated for the middle grades audience. This book runs at a clip over an alluring premise: there's a creepy abandoned house, a disfigured caretaker, and a case of a missing diamond necklace. While more mature readers will call out tropes as they see them and find the ending predictable, for younger and less experienced readers there's a delight in wat [...]

But Arthur quickly realizes that he's signed up for much more than he expected as someone seems intent on killing Darius. As the two boys combine their wits to solve a mystery concerning some missing diamonds, they are joined by Arth [...]

    Darius Drake is clearly a young Sherlock Holmes. He's clever and aloof, brilliant but solitary until one day he hires Arthur Bash to help him solve his first crime, who killed Darius Drake. The chapters are short and the book does a great job of introducing and explaining all kinds of wonderful vocabulary. But it drives me nuts that the narration is told in present tense. I also dislike how many times the main character puts himself down about his weight and not having any friends. Arthur might [...]

    Arthur “Bash Man” is the school thug, paid with candy to bully and threaten other students. When genius orphan Darius Drake employs Arthur to help him discover the origin of a suspicious threat, written in blood, they uncover a mystery that involves Darius’s estranged grandfather, who was imprisoned for forging evidence in a search for a long-lost diamond necklace worth millions. The boys make the dangerous decision to search for the jewels themselves and in the process, discover that the [...]

    This book gets a four star rating because students in 4th-6th grade, in my opinion, will enjoy this mystery despite its predictable and slightly implausible ending (adults search for treasure for decades, yet kids find it within a very short period of time.)There's a bad guy in the story, a mysterious, hidden diamond necklace worth millions, a secret burial site, memorable characters, and plenty of storyline to keep the pages turning. Some young readers may be confused by terminology used surrou [...]

    This book was very well written. The characters are so relate able and you can really picture it in your mind. This book never stops the excitement you just cant stop reading. I would recommend this book to anyone

    This was a fun story. Nothing particularly outstanding about it, but I think kids would enjoy it. Bonus points for having a conclusion slightly different than most similar books.

    I enjoyed this story by the author of one of my favorite books, Freak the Mighty. Humor, mystery and a great story about friendship and differences.
