From the exhilirating opening chase sequence, through the expertly drawn scenes familiar to anyone who has stepped in a school, and climaxing in a tense rooftop finale, this is another work of spot on observation and description from Keith Gray. Malarkey is a teenage Philip Marlowe; lead by his conscience, his respect for his mother, and his attraction to a pretty girl, he finds himself caught up in a variety of awkward situations.
My heart was racing as I read this book. The deviousness of the Tailors, the inadequacy of the teachers, and the tenacity of Malarkey, combine to produce an excellent thriller. Raymond Chandler for kids!
A good, fast paced, exciting book that all teens will love.
The reason this book is so goo is that it is realistic. The characters, the way they behave, the whole setup is somehow so convincing and gripping that you have to read on. This is one of those books that you will finish in one night because you can't sleep for wondering what will happen.
