Max learns that his favorite Mexican wrestler is long-lost great uncle Rodolfo. When an ex-girlfriend (and luchadora Dama Enmascarada) crashes uncle Lalo's wedding, Rodolfo offers to fight her in a fundraiser for the church. A jaunty read for young fans of lucha libre. ( )

The novelty of this book is that it is written as a bilingual text. Each page is English on one side and Spanish on the facing side. While billed as a mystery, I didn't think there was much suspense. Max is a huge Lucha Libre fan who particularly admires a luchadore named The Guardian Angel. His house of an uncle, Lalo, figures prominently into the story as well. ( )
