 Detective Stories

Hi

Anyone know of any decent detetive stories that would suit a gifted 9 year old. Obviously reading at a teenage level but content not always appropriate for his age level. He wants to read my true crime books (definitely not appropriate) - so was wondering if anyone knows of any good detective/crime/forensic books suitable for kids.

Thanks Linda for replying but for the life of me I can't get him to read classics he is only interested in newer books i.e. 21st century????

Hi Marshe,

Have you looked into Horrorland?? My 9yr old HS'd boy LOVES those!! You can get them from Lucky's, Scholastic.

Cheers
