A family-friendly sports mystery packed with action and adventure…for the 9 to 12 age group...
Tony Crowne is a back-up quarterback and aspiring detective who has his share of troubles: He hates the nickname his father gave him, his eighty-pound dog clobbers his mother and grandfather at breakfast and he gets into a fight with the biggest kid in school.
Worst of all, his best friend, cheerleader Ashley Richardson, disappears the morning before Tony’s big football game. Did she run away? Was she kidnapped? Is she alive?
Now, Tony must help his team win the big game and help a retired police detective find Ashley before it’s too late.
The first in a series of Tony Crowne mysteries. Approximately 343 pages in the paperback version.
Bonus: This edition contains an excerpt from Peter Guy George's new Tony Crowne mystery, "The Tiny Heist."
