I really enjoyed this book and although I hate to admit it, it is the first book I read on a Kindle. I am a school librarian and have been debating about getting and/or needing an electronic device to read books from. When this book by Roland Smith came out and was available only on the Nook or Kindle, I knew I had to read it so I downloaded the Kindle app for my phone (free) and purchased this book ASAP. I really enjoyed the story and the clever title. Like all of Roland Smith's books (and yes, I have read them all) this book was very entertaining. I especially liked Theodore who, even after life dealt him an unfair blow, made the best of his situation and succeeded in accomplishing his dream of becoming a detective. The story was fast paced and action packed and fans of Roland Smith's books will not be disappointed! I am anxiously awaiting Roland Smith's next book as are all of my students. Keep the great stories coming!

FROM -THIS KID REVIEWS BOOKS -find me on the web!

Briggs never thought becoming friends with his new neighbor, Theodore, would send him to Montana to save a kidnapped 4-year old from her evil aunt. As it turns out, Theodore, who appears to be only a kid who happens to be confined to a wheelchair and has a room full of computers and electronic equipment, is also a partner in a detective agency. Theodore recruits Briggs to help him solve his latest case, finding the missing girl. Briggs finds himself on an amazing adventure. Briggs realizes sacrifices must be made -from having his head shaved to carrying around a 4-year old girl. Can Briggs complete his mission and get back home before his parents find out?

This is the first true e-book I have read. It only comes in e-book form. This book is funny and exciting. I couldn't put the book down and read it in 2 days (YAHOO for summer vacation!). The book would be good for younger advanced readers. Besides the Hardy Boys mysteries (the older ones, I'm not fond of the New Hardy Boys), I really haven't found many detective stories I like, but this one is great! I hope Mr. Smith writes a second book with Briggs and Theodore.
I give Legwork 5 out of 5 Stars!

Although Roland Smith wrote this story years ago, this was a great read on my Kindle. Roland Smith is a favorite author in my family, and the description of this book sounded different than his others. With our family trip to Yellowstone this year, it was a perfect match! When the main character was sent into Yellowstone National Park to find an abducted child, it was fun for my 11 year old son and I to visualize and know the locations of all of the action. The book was a short, easy read - and left me wanting many more cases for these kids to solve!

This is a book that Roland Smith wrote a while ago, but just recently decided to publish it as an ebook. There is a brief preface saying "Before cell phones, before reality TV. . . there was my first case." It's sort of an interesting way to explain things like giant expensive computers and modems and whatnot. It makes sense to me, a 40-year-old mom, but I'm not sure that is enough of a reminder for kids. I might have liked to see a date given.

That said, this ebook gave me exactly what I expect from Roland Smith -- a fast-paced, easy-to-read adventure.

Briggs was playing football one day when his ball went into the new neighbor's yard. He meets Theodore, who is about his age, but wheelchair-bound (Smith deals with this like any teen boy would. Briggs is a little uncomfortable, Theodore calls him on it, and they move on). As their friendship progresses, Theodore lets Briggs in on his secret, that he's running a detective agency out of his room. Briggs thinks that he's delusional, and doesn't know what to do when Theodore asks him to go out of state and investigate a kidnapping.

The story is told from Briggs' point of view, and he's a likable and well-developed character. Theodore isn't quite so well-developed, but this portrayal of a teen male friendship adds a great layer to the exciting adventure.

CONTENT NOTE: This book doesn't have anything inappropriate like language or anything, however it deals with a young girl who has been kidnapped by a cult, which could be confusing or unsettling for younger readers, so I recommend it for 10 and up.

I'm glad Roland Smith released this as an inexpensive ebook and I hope other established authors do the same. Well worth the cost!

This is the story of two young boys Briggs and Theodore. They are neighbors yet don't meet until a football game in Brigg's backyard sends the football into Theodore's back yard. Theodore invites Briggs over. Briggs is uncomfortable around Theodore because he is in a wheelchair. He finally begins hanging out and Theodore tells him he is a dectective and invites Briggs to join him. Briggs meets up with Uncle Willy who he thinks is just helping with Theodore's detective "game". When he is given money and sent on an actual mission it becomes all too real. He is to infiltrate a cult to see if a young missing girl is there. I won't tell you more because you really need to read the book. It kept me sitting on the edge of my seat and I read it in a little over an hour. Like all of his work this is a book that will thrill you and keep you on the edge of you seat wanting more. This is one of the reasons I enjoy his work so much.
