    This is the fourth and presumably final book in the Mickey Sharp, teenage detective series I ve read the first two but not the third the library lost that one but it doesn t seem to matter because it isn t an arc series.I really like the style of these books Mickey s narration is witty and entertaining and it s just fun to be around This book feels a littlesubstantial than the previous ones, with a detective plot that is a bitelaborate andof Mickey s life details that seem This is the fourth and presumably final book in the Mickey Sharp, teenage detective series I ve read the first two but not the third the library lost that one but it doesn t seem to matter because it isn t an arc series.I really like the style of these books Mickey s narration is witty and entertaining and it s just fun to be around This book feels a littlesubstantial than the previous ones, with a detective plot that is a bitelaborate andof Mickey s life details that seemed a little bit skimpy particularly in book two Here we get to see his progression at school and at home as well as playing detectives, which I think is needed when your protagonist is 14.My only complaint is that Mickey is on occasion almost unbelievably dumb Since his narration is so witty and smart and he is perfectly able to make dry witted or sardonic observations about when things are going wrong or how he can predict people s behaviour, it is clear that he is quite let s call it sharp So how he can miss incredibly obvious things going on around him he s a pretty poor detective actually and have to have them spelled out by others, is infuriating for the reader But since all the clues that the reader can pick up on are directly laid out for us BY Mickey, since it s first person narration, I don t get how he fails to see them It also makes me a bit sad that he doesn t try at school at all I get that he finds most of it pointless, but surely he would have some interest in at least one subject somewhere Mickey doesn t appear to have any interests or hobbies at all and pretty much no friends I guess his plan is that after he flunks out of school, he will live by being a private detective.Anyway, overall, this was an enjoyable series with great narration and a fun last book Hopefully one day I will be able to track down the third one.Oh and side note, the covers are AWFUL This one has a boy riding a skateboard and holding a spray can Okay, so at one point in this story, Mickey does get framed for graffiti but at no point does he actually touch the spray can and he very clearly and often rides a BIKE Absolutely no skateboards mentioned I think the covers really undersell the books It s like they are trying to say look at this cool kid we re edgy but Mickey isn t a cool kid He s a sardonic loser detective kid He d roll his eyes if he saw that kid on the front cover
