There is much to like in this children's mystery novel. Isabel, a young would-be reporter, gets involved in a murder mystery in 1920's Chicago. There is plenty of action, fun, interesting characters and humour. The 1920's setting is well-used and integral to the stories. Isabel is a wonderful, intrepid heroine. There are many fascinating side characters, especially Maude Collier, a journalist based on real life female journalists of the 1920's. While the book is breezy and fun, at well over 300 pages it is a fairly hefty read for children. Also, the fact that the book involves an actual murder and has some discussions of more mature subject matter make this a better choice for older children, so I would recommend this for 10 and up. I loved the old-fashioned substantialness of this book and I would gladly read another Isabel Feeney mystery.
