Brown Books Publishing Group invites young readers to discover the page-turning "Chase Manning Mystery Book Series" by educator Steve Reifman of Santa Monica, California.
School Library Journal calls the “Chase Manning Mystery Series, “a fun read with a likeable character and a lot of red herrings.”
In the first of the series "Chase Against Time," readers are introduced to fifth grade detective Chase Manning when a prized cello goes missing on the morning of the Apple Valley Elementary School's fundraiser to save their award-winning music program from looming budget cuts.
The school principal charges Chase Manning—who dreams of playing in the Sixth Grade Honors Orchestra—with finding the cello by three o’clock.
Each hour of the school day involves surprising and suspense-filled plot twists as Chase pursues the elusive cello.
“‘Chase Against Time’ is edgy, suspenseful, and fun,” says Brad Turner, producer and director of the TV series "24."
Student Julio Escarce says, "'Chase Against Time' is a sure winner! Impossible to put down!"
"Fans of Encyclopedia Brown are sure to love this series," says Lee Edward Fodi, author of the "Chronicles of Kendra Kandlestar Series."
