Edgar Cantero’s head-kick of a novel about damaged adults
who used to be spunky kid detectives mixes bright, pulpy cartoon nostalgia with
some seriously dark trauma-survivor subtext.
Critic Jason Sheehan says, “Look, I loved this book end to
end and I am using my position as Deputy Commander of the NPR Nerd Army to
instruct all of you to read it immediately, because it is funny and sad and
tragic and pulpy, all in the best possible way.”
