New children's mystery book series "Chase Manning Mystery" (Brown Books Publishing Group), by National Board Certified Teacher Steve Reifman of Santa Monica, CA, introduces young readers to fifth grade detective Chase Manning.
In the first installment of the series, "Chase Against Time," a recently donated, handcrafted cello goes missing on the day of the annual Apple Valley Elementary School fund-raising dinner to save the school's award-winning music program.
The school principal charges Chase Manning, a fifth grader who has always dreamed 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 suspenseful plot turns as Chase pursues the elusive cello and gets closer to solving the mystery. This single day, real time thriller truly is a chase against time.
