Fifteen-year-old Mike McGill has lived with his Uncle Billy since his mother's death. Only ten years older than Mike, Billy loves to party, and he doesn't pay much attention when Mike starts getting in trouble. But nothing gets by Mike's history teacher, an ex-cop named Riel--especially not long-hidden information about Mike's mother. Her death might not have been an accident after all!

Started slowly, then built up quickly in the last act. I couldn't help but get a little cringey at the relationship between the teacher and the student, and wonder in what world some of these interactions wouldn't be considered weird. ( )

Fifteen-year-old Mike has been living with his Uncle Billy, who's only ten years older than Mike, since Mike's mother (and Billy's older sister) was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Billy seems too caught up having fun and partying to notice the trouble Mike gets into with the law. Enter Mike's history teacher, John Riel, who's also a former cop. Riel cares enough about Mike to make sure he does not go down a slippery slope, as well as help Mike get closure as they soon discover that Mike's mom's death may not be an accident, but rather a homicide. Quick-reading, engaging mystery where you can see the clues fall into place. This will appeal to guys, especially reluctant readers. ( )

pour le plaisir, + ou - 300p., roman policier, vocabulaire parfois difficile. Je le recommande pour les lecteurs de la 8e. ( )

I really love these books. They are vibrant and Mike and Riel are real and likeable. The relationship between Mike and Riel is great and one of the main things that brings me back to reread these books. It is a relationship I've only found in Catherine Jinks' "Pagan" books between Pagan and Roland and these so far. Plus, knowing Toronto, it is great to know the locations in the book. ( )
