About the Author
Malcolm Rose is the author of more than twenty-five novels for young adults. A former professor of chemistry, he is a well-known crime and thriller writer. Rose has won many awards over the years, including the Angus Book Award for Tunnel Vision and the Lancashire Book of the Year Award for Plague. His first book in the Traces series, Framed!, was selected as a 2006 Best International Book by the International Reading Association.
There are SO many novels for kids about sorcerers, witches, vampires and the like that books based around magic must be like a no-brainer fall back position for publishers. But there's hope! Try this Traces series of novels. My 14 year old son read them all in quick order and talked his 12 year old sister into trying them and she loves these books.
The stories take place in an alternate reality, same timeline as ours but a world where cats and dogs are endangered, technology is far more advanced and the police have robot partners.
The hero is a 16 year old forensic investigator and he has a robot sidekick and they are a crime solving team.
My son says he likes the books because there are good plot twists and humor throughout the book.
Thank you, Mr. Rose, for actually being inventive and writing these captivating books that aren't sorcery driven.
