Malone by C.L. Gaber and V.C. Stanley.
Are you a detective diva who can’t stand to let a mystery go unsolved? Then you’ve gotta pick up
Follow along as Jessica (aka Jex) is forced to live with her father for the entire summer. After years and years of violating court order, Jex has two options: Stay with her dad or spend the summer in the Big House, serving time for her violation of custody. Even though the choice is obvious, Jex still is not ready to spend her vacay with a man she hasn’t talked to for the past 10 years.
When Jex arrives at
her dad’s house, it is just as dreary and boring as she predicted. The No. 1
house rule? No sleuthing! Jex’s father is a Detective and since she was a young
child, so Jex has always been getting into trouble trying to solve the
mysteries. And this summer is no exception. Her major goal is to close a case
of a missing girl that was never solved—a case that led her father close to
obsession and was a huge factor in her parents’ divorce.
Jex finds friends
in the most unlikely way and confides in them to help her out. Soon, the gang
gets tangled in a web of lies, deceit and scary facts and the only way out of
it is to believe the impossible.
C.L. Gaber and V.C.
Stanley combine their journalistic experiences and knowledge of criminal cases
to create this heart-pounding novel that will leave you wanting more. We love
that the book uses classic sleuths like Nancy Drew to help readers get a better
understanding of who Jex really is and why she acts the way she does.
Who is really behind
the missing child case? What really caused Jex’s parents to split up? The only
way to find out is to pick up a copy of Jex
