Thirteen-year-old James Richard McNulty has problems. His mother has just divorced his father. His grades are plummeting. Bullies are menacing him on the school bus. The coach is threatening to kick him off the basketball team. And his smart and lovely “girlfriend” thinks he’s gone insane.
Then he finds a suitcase filled with cash — and thinks all his problems are over.
This young adult suspense novel comes from acclaimed author David Housewright.
Praise for the novels of David Housewright …
“McKenzie, who navigates a treacherous path just to stay (barely) alive, not only delivers a Nick Charles — like ending but metes out poetic justice to a fair number of participants.” — Publishers Weekly
“Housewright’s wit is every bit as sharp as (Robert B.) Parker’s” — Killer Books
“McKenzie, who describes himself as a ‘knight-errant doing favors for friends’ (he’s a retired cop with a lot of money so he doesn’t need a day job), makes a fine series lead, charmingly unlikable in a likable sort of way, and the stories are solid mysteries with a hint of humor. A very enjoyable series that deserves a wider audience.” — Booklist Online
