This book is the fifth in a series and is a great way to introduce younger readers to the crime-solving genre. The text is a great way to look at how the author has developed the different personalities of the characters and how he reflects the diversity of personalities in any community. The main characters, Buffy and Detective Gordon show us how people see things from a different perspective and the importance of not judging people before you have met them properly.
