Chet Gecko's Detective Handbook (and Cookbook): Tips for Private Eyes and Snack Food Lovers
Synopses & Reviews
Revealed at last--secrets and surprises from ace detectives Chet Gecko and Natalie Attired's criminal casebook!
This nifty (and very handy) handbook features tips and techniques for detective work: how to shadow people, collect evidence, and conduct searches; photocopy-ready documents that every private eye needs--license, search warrants, forged sick-day notes from parents; a list of suspects and pointers on how to ID the crooks; a guide to detective lingo for all you shamuses; and tasty recipes for distinctively Chet Gecko-ish snacks, including Tick Tacos and Sweet Potato-Bug Pie (minus the bugs, of course).
It doesn't take a private eye to see that this book is F-U-N.
A how-to for every budding detective/gourmand/comedian!
