Most people read the newspaper to find out what's happening around the world. But Abby Jones hopes to find a mystery or murder to solve. When she spots the headline ""Suspected Spy Sought in Secrets Sale,'' it looks like a perfect case for her and best friend Potsie to take on. While the two are visiting Police Detective Garcia, Abby adds an unsolved runaway case to her load. Although Giff's third book about Abby Jones (Have You Seen Hyacinth Macaw?; Loretta P. Sweeny, Where Are You?) is light fare, its breezy style and plausible plot are diverting. Ages 9-12. (November)
