The NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller at an unbeatable price! Includes After Words bonus features.

When a book of unexplainable occurences brings Petra and Calder together, strange things start to happen: Seemingly unrelated events connect; an eccentric old woman seeks their company; an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears. Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal, where no one is spared from suspicion. As Petra and Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth, they must draw on their powers of intuition, their problem solving skills, and their knowledge of Vermeer. Can they decipher a crime that has stumped even the FBI?


This bewitching first novel is a puzzle, wrapped in a mystery, disguised as an adventure, and delivered as a work of art.

Very fun kid's mystery. Kids are great at questioning how things work, as does the main characters, Calder and Petra work together to put all of their clues to the test and help to recover a stolen painting. I also like that there are some math puzzles involved and the illustrations have some clues hidden inside to solve an additional puzzle. A nice, clean kid's mystery with lots of twists and turns.
