Trouble in New York
Illustrator: Marco Guadalupi Publisher: Scholastic
Jamie Creeden has always wanted to be a reporter – so when he is given a tour of the famous MORNING YORKER newspaper, he can’t believe his luck. But a chance phone call draws him into the mystery of the missing actress. Soon Jamie, along with his new friends Eve and Rose, must navigate a tense world of infamous villains, double crosses and carefully planted clues – a world in which he can trust absolutely no one. He still longs to be on the front page – but at what cost?
Set in 1960s New York, this is a fast-paced adventure for mystery fans.
