Fletcher Moon has never been like other kids. For one thing, he has had to suffer the humiliating nickname Half Moon because of his short stature. But the real reason Fletcher is different is that ever since he was a baby, he's had a nose for sniffing out mysteries. And let's just say, it's not a skill that has been appreciated by many people, including his own family.

That doesn't bother Fletcher, though. After graduating at the top of his Internet class, he is officially certified as the youngest detective in the world. He even has a silver-plated detective's badge to prove it. Everything is going along fine until two things happen: a classmate hires him to solve a crime, and his prized badge is stolen. All signs point to the town's most notorious crime family, the Sharkeys.

As Fletcher follows the clues, evidence of a conspiracy begins to emerge. But before he can crack the case, Fletcher finds himself framed for a serious crime. To clear his name, he will have to pair up with the unlikeliest of allies and go on the run from the authorities. Fletcher has 12 hours to find the guilty party, or he is the guilty party.

    " The book itself was great, but listening to it on CD was definitely the way to go. The Irish accent and detective lingo were really fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/29/2014

    " This book was cute. It would be a good group read in 5th grade or 6th grade. Kind of along the same lines as Artemis Fowl. I think it is a great kid's read. I would maybe read subsequent books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Squeaky | 1/28/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 11/17/2013

    " What fun this book was and what wonderful characters! Fletcher Moon is a twelve year old badge-in-hand detective who wants a real mystery to solve and gets it. Thoroughly enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Owen | 11/13/2013

    " This was a good mystery. I liked how Moon found out what it was like to be a sharkie(I'm not sure I spelled that right) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 11/9/2013

    " Colfer's writings have a type of humor that resonates with me. I love this "hard-boiled" detective novel starring a kid detective who earned his license from an online course. Very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanna | 11/8/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 3/17/2013

    " Just wonderful. I was afraid I'd be disappointed because I love the Artemis Fowl series so much. No worries. With lots of action and some misdirection, you have a book written for kids that can be much enjoyed by adults. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul (formerly known as Current) | 12/29/2012

    " Enjoyable comic/investigation adventure in a modern non-American setting. Somewhere in the Encyclopedia Brown, Hardy Boys genre--however, Colfer does not ameliorate physical violence, thus giving his stories a sense of danger and a modern edge. "

    " great book ... loved it .kept me wanting more. helped develop my dream of being a detective . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian | 10/6/2012

    " Eoin Colfer has a very good way of writing books. He must do a lot of research since this book was well detailed. In the book, Fletcher Moon is framed and forced to prove himself innocent by solving the mystery. This is a very creative book that i loved! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William | 8/25/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 4/5/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 musicluvr123 | 4/5/2011

    " I read this a LONG time ago, and all i remember is that it was a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 3/19/2011

    " As expected, this is pretty much right along the lines of the Artemis Fowl series. If I were a 10-year-old boy, this would be an awesome book. Since I'm 60% like a 10-year-old-boy, I give it a 6. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Callie | 3/8/2011

    " I liked how there was no part in the book that you could just predict. You litteraly had to read through all of it otherwise you were left guessing. I would recommend this to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/8/2011

    " I thought this book was great. It started out slowly but the action slowly arrised after a while. There were many themes and a lot of characters. The main character's name is Fletcher and he lives in a town called Loch, I think it's in Europe. It was interesting, definatley "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 3/6/2011

    " loved it...... another of my favorite books. "
