Description

"Not since Nancy Drew has a nosy, crime-obsessed kid been so hard to resist." —The New York Times   Thirteen-year-old Theodore Boone thought the danger had passed, but he’s about to face off against an old adversary: accused mur­derer and fugitive Pete Duffy.  On a field trip to Washington, DC, Theo spots a familiar face on the Metro: Duffy, who jumped bail and was never seen again. Theo’s quick thinking helps bring Duffy back to Strattenburg to stand trial. But now that Duffy knows who he is, Theo is in greater danger than he’s ever been in before. Even when every­thing is on the line, Theodore Boone will stop at nothing to make sure a killer is brought to justice.   This smart, fast-paced legal thriller for young readers is the newest adventure for clever and determined kid lawyer Theo Boone.
