Chet Gecko Mysteries #15: Dial M for Mongoose Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chet Geckos investigations often show him the seamy underbelly of school life, but this case throws him for a loop. A deadly stink bomb is unleashed, a school building falls to rubble, money goes missing from the principals office, and thats just a start. Chets endurance for trouble is tested, but so is his loyalty: Someone is trying to get his mongoose janitor pal Maureen DeBree fired. A true-blue P.I. doesnt take that kind of monkey business lying down. Standing up, maybe.
And stand up he will—to some very shifty school bullies. Chet keeps digging for the truth like a mole after an earthworm sandwich. Oh, foolish detective.

Synopsis:

The pun-slinging, crime-solving Chet Gecko is at it again in this new mystery of fire and stink!
