Product Description

Arthur was about to climb out of the car when he heard a strangled scream. He crouched down behind the front seat and carefully peered out at what was happening. Three large Asian men in jeans and T-shirt and with black gloves on their hands were carrying a struggling man out of the bathroom. His mouth, arms, and legs were bound with silver duct tape.

His heart racing, Arthur felt for his cell phone. With a sinking feeling, he realized that he had left it at home. 186 pages, paperback. From Kregel Publications.

    A detective story from a Christian perspective

    Brother and sister Arthur and Kristin Davis are partners in their private enterprise called the Davis Detective Agency. In The Case of the Autumn Rose, the third in the series written by Rick Acker, the two once again use their skills of observation, deduction and research to solve a mystery.

    This one involves a wealthy, rather over-bearing woman named Madame Dragonfly, a Frenchman named Pierre LeGrand and a pearl called the Autumn Rose. Madame Dragonfly hires Arthur and Kristin to figure out where the pearl is and how to get to it without being killed in the process.

    That is no easy task considering a number of unscrupulous thugs are out to find the Autumn Rose before the kids do and the thugs will do whatever is necessary to meet their objective, including murder.

    What I Like: I liked the story. For the most part it was very well-written.

    What I Dislike: However, the last part of the story wasn't of the same literary quality as the rest of it was. For one thing, there is a major water chase and shoot-out near the end of the book. Three boats are destroyed in the process. With all the smoke, flames, and bullets, the only injury reported is a broken foot. That stretches the limits of credibility somewhat.

    And, the next-top-the-last chapter sums up what happened after all the boats blew up and the crisis is over. I found this chapter rather dull as it had no dialogue or personal interaction. It was more like a laundry-list of events. Thankfully, the last chapter was more interesting.

    Overall Rating: Good.

    My 11 year old daughter enjoyed this and has read it several times. My HUSBAND said it's one of the best written books like this that he's read. I enjoyed it too. It wasn't fake and unrealistic.
