"Twelve year old Devlin Quick is determined to bring a thief to justice when someone steals a page out of a rare maps book in the New York Public Library"--
"This likable gumshoe follows the trail from the library lions on 42nd Street to Brooklyn Public Library's Central Building, and readers will be happy to go right along with her."--Kirkus Reviews "A well-crafted and satisfying first volume in a new series. Ideal for bibliophiles and mystery fans alike."--School Library Journal"The action-packed, first-person story is full of informational tidbits on beloved authors (Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley, Jane Austen), cartographers, New York library history and much more. With a balanced mix of well-defined characters, engaging dialogue, cliffhanging chapters and unexpected scenes, this book is nothing less than one riveting read."--BookPage
