The Case of the Watching Boy

Robert Newman, Author Atheneum Books $13.95 (171p) ISBN 978-0-689-31317-2
The ninth book in Newman's series about Andrew Tillet finds the youthful Victorian sleuth in trouble. The British lad and a classmate help a woman, ""Mrs. Gray,'' recover her abducted three-year-old son from George, her former, mad husband. Too late, the trusting boys discover that they've been involved in a kidnap plot. Andrew's stepfather, inspector Peter Wyatt, takes over and brings along Andrew's mother, spiky young friend Sara and other valiant allies from earlier stories. Wyatt and his loyal band generate suspense as they battle a diabolic cabal aiming to usurp sovereignty of George's country. This is another dandy adventure with strong appeal for fans of the previous tales. Ages 8-12. (September)
