Sammy Keyes is back, with the same spunk and verve as in past titles, and her boyfriend Casey to boot. Still sneaking into the retirement community where she lives secretly with her Gran, there's a new crime-fighter in town: Justice Jack. How is it that he manages to stop so many crimes-in-action? And why, if he is, is crime on the rise? Meanwhile, where has Gran's bossy neighbor Mrs. Wedgewood gone? Well-paced and featuring many of the favorite characters of past books, this will have great appeal to tween readers. Recommended.(216) ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375870520, Hardcover)

Sammy thought she'd seen all the weirdness her town had to offer—and then she met Justice Jack, Santa Martina's very own superhero. Well, really he's just a guy in spandex and a mask who rides around town on a dirt bike, hoping to find some crime to fight.

The old folks in town think he's wonderful. So wonderful that they've asked him to track down Sammy's neighbor Mrs. Wedgewood, who seems to have disappeared—along with a lot of other people's cash. Sammy's friends think Justice Jack is funny and cool. Billy Pratt's even auditioning to be his sidekick! But Sammy thinks he's kind of . . . lame. He's more of a showstopper than a crime stopper. And when a real mystery comes along, Sammy finds herself right in the middle of it. . . .

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:15 -0400)

When Justice Jack, a self-appointed superhero, begins trying to track down the missing Mrs. Wedgewod and some stolen cash, the older folks in Santa Martina are delighted but Sammy knows it will be up to her to really solve the mystery.
