If my memory serves me this is the first Dan Ryan book i've read. Although for readers much younger than I this a really thrilling book; most ingeniously constructed , it shows, if based on real life, that our younger generation is still very much on the ball - not just intelligent and ingeniuos but very brave and loyal. To catch on at 10 years of age, as Ethan did, that neither age nor position in society, nor even professionalism can get away with unfounded or unproven accusations - as Ethan, and his 'co-conspiritor' Lexi caught on proves that trhere still hope for the human race. Great work Dan, and lets hear more, much more of Ethan and Lexi

This is a book about two children, computer-wise Ethan and book-loving Lexie, who are as different from one another as two people could be, but who find themselves working together in a desperate race against time to discover the truth which will prove Ethan's mother innocent of the murder of his baby sister. I found myself particularly drawn to Lexie, who reminds me forcibly of Hermione Granger. Perhaps not surprisingly so. My brother, in fact, whose copy of this book I purloined, insists that Lexie reminds him of me at that age. Not true! I was never such a know-it-all, although I was (and still am) a bookworm. Despite - or maybe because of - her "Hermione-ness", I think readers both young and old will feel considerable affection for Lexie, and, of course, for Ethan himself, as he uses his own skills to unravel a mystery of far-reaching ramifications. Oh, and one other thing. Anyone who has been following the news in the UK over the past few years will realise that the story was inspired by fact.

If you you like this book, you'll also like Ryan's very entertaining follow-up: Ethan and the Cryptic Clues (The Ethan and Lexie adventures)

As some one else pointed out, there are similarities between this book and Mark Haddon's book, partly because of its use of the first person in the bulk of the narrative. But in my opinion this is better. Firstly, I think it is more insightful into human nature in the first person parts of the narrative. Secondly, because in a few chapters it steps out of the first person to convey the rest of the action. This is a strength rather than a flaw, as we cut away from the young hero and then come back to him. Ethan Blaine, the central character, is somewhat younger than Haddon's hero: only ten at the start of the book. But his age-skewed insights are augmented by the opinions of his sidekick Lexie - or "Miss Bossy Boots" as he calls her (although not to her face of course). The book has its charm - and its excitement as a thriller. And it sent me running to the sequel.
