It's been Chase's dream for years to be in the sixth grade honors orchestra. If he can't find the missing cello, his dreams will be dashed. He only has until the end of the day to look beyond the usual suspects and find the thief
In Chase Against time, Chase Manning Mystery #1, author, Steve Reifman, builds tension and excitement by having the action take place over a short amount of time. The school setting makes the story easy to relate to the target ages of 8-12. Chase is a likable detective who children will want to follow through a series. Recommended, though I think the series will appeal to the mid range of the suggested age more than the upper end. I was reminded of the Encyclopedia Brown series I read as a child. The Chase Manning series will appeal to the reader who likes these types of detective mysteries.
