Description

For a great detective, the best part of retiring is coming out of retirement. Retired private detective and current seventh grader Steve Brixton has a new job: He takes out the trash for five bucks a week. But it's hard to leave the old game behind, and on a train trip down the California coast, Steve and his best chum, Dana, are pulled into a mystery involving a fleet of stolen automobiles, a vanishing girl, and a phantom train car. Oh, and there might just be some romance.... This laugh-out-loud mystery is a witty, modern-day companion to the adventures of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew that brims with humor and intrigue.show more

Review quote

"Barnett's sly and often silly Hardy Boy parody chugs along with plenty of laughs and enough honest-to-gosh mystery to please any lover of boy detective fiction. Rex's black-and-white pencils (which also parody the Hardy tales) are still a fine match for the goofiness. Mention of the next adventure at mystery's close will make Brixton fans smile."--"Kirkus Reviews"show more
