Linsey Lanier's The Clever Detective is a grown-up's trip down memory lane. We follow Detective Stacey Alexander as she meets with a potential client at an address that turns out to be a hollow tree with a door carved in its side. She soon finds herself hurtling down a dark tunnel and landing at the feet of her client, King Thrugood. This begins a trip through some of our favorite fairy tales as Stacey sets out across the Kingdom to find the missing Prince.
Ms. Lanier has a fun, flirty voice that had me thinking of the old black and white detective movies where the detective's voice gives the audience a play by play of the story. The author combined this technique with the fairy tale world to create a fun and unique short story that left me smiling all the way through.
If you're looking for a temporary getaway that's light and easy to read or one that leaves you with a good feeling about the world we live in, The Clever Detective will take you to that place. Kudos to the author.
This was about a chapter long and I have no idea how this thing has so many glowing reviews.
Recommended? No. I hate stories that aren't even stories.
This was stupid.
I am unsure why this showed up in the "mystery /thriller " search I did. I downloaded it as I had just read a promising prelude by same author. But, this is really for middleschoolers.
The writing is good - few errors. Even though not my bag, I would have rated higher stars if the whole of the "case" were not so contrived and a bit cliched.

Not too original. Spins off a number of fairy tales. I'm still not sure if this is a kids book or an adult book. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Lin

Not exactly what I was expecting. Story line is lame, doesn't give much detail and ends to quickly. I wouldn't pay for this book or any more.Published 11 months ago by Kindle Customer
