Griff Carver Knows a Thing or Two About Fighting Crime!

No, he cannot be bought. He cannot be frightened. And he will not sleep until justice is served. Because Griff Carver is not just any kid—he’s a kid with a badge.  And if you are a rule breaker, he’s your worst nightmare.

Griff might be the newest officer on the Rampart Middle School Patrol Squad, but he’s no rookie. And he’ll do whatever it takes to clean up the school’s mean hallways, even if it lands him in trouble with the Old Lady (a.k.a. Mom).

But when he links cool kid, Marcus “The Smile” Volger, to a counterfeit hall pass ring, can Griff and his friends close the case? Or will his habit of ruffling feathers mean he’ll let down the force—and lose his badge—for good? Download and start listening now!

    " This is an excellent parody. It reminds me of every cop film I've ever seen in my life. I suppose the author must have watched scores of them as "research" for this novel. (Hope his brain didn't turn to mush.) And the ending leaves plenty of room for a sequel! "
