Adam Castle is twelve years old and lives in Beverly Hills, California. This is the story of how his world turns upside-down. Adam has never known exactly what his mom and dad's jobs are, all he knows was that they are rich. After overhearing a conversation between his parents, Adam suspects that there is more to his dad's job than he has revealed. When Adam overhears more conversations, he suspects his parents of foul play and murder. He discovers that his classmate Jen may be kidnapped and held for ransom. It's up to Adam and his best friend, Julian, to save their classmate. Is Adam's dad really a murderer? Can he find evidence against his dad? And how will Adam and Julian save Jen?
I think that this book is really good.The characters are well-developed; the plot is brilliant with a nice twist at the end. And although the book is about murder, the mood of the writing style is cheery, which is a good aspect to have. The writing style is fair, but this book is more about the story. You can feel the character's emotions, as well as Julian's, and even Adam's father. Overall, this book is great. The length is perfect, and the story is somewhat satisfying.
