Something is rotten in Denmark, Tennessee, and it is not just the polluted Copenhagen River. Hamilton Prince's father has been murdered, according to a hidden video message. Horatio Wilkes, Hamilton's best friend, is visiting the Prince mansion when the video turns up. The guys need to find the killer before he strikes again.

But it won't be easy. Suspects are plentiful. Olivia Mendelssohn may be hot (and Hamilton's ex-girlfriend), but she's also an environmentalist determined to clean up the river that the Prince paper plant has been polluting for decades. Trudy, Hamilton's mom, has recently married her husband's brother, Claude, and signed over half of the plant and its profits to him. Not to mention Ford N. Branff, media mogul and Trudy's college flame, who wants to buy the plant for himself. The question is motive, and Horatio Wilkes is just the kind of guy who can find things like that out. Doesn't matter that he's only a junior in high school.

Here's a smart, hip, and funny twist on the tale of Hamlet, where one-liners crackle and mystery abounds. Think you already know the story? Think again.

    " A very clever setting of Hamlet in the modern day. (Ophelia = Olivia, etc.) A bit predictable if you know the Shakespeare story. Good choice for an english lit class, i liked the characters and the voices. well done. looking forward to "something wicked" "

    " probably one of the most NON interesting books I've ever read and not my typical catigorie either. The book was not catching the authors suspense level is very low again not a reconmendation. "

    " I thought this was a great book. It was a really funny and interesting mystery about a boy who is casual and cool and his upper class, angry friend. He helps his friend avenge the murder of his Dad who owned a paper company which is being exposed by his friend's cute ex-girlfriend because of pollution. Has a sort of Catcher in the Rye meets mystery feel. A fun book with good closure. "
