The trial of the century has come to Tupelo Landing, NC. Mo and Dale, aka Desperado Detectives, head to court as star witnesses against Dale's daddy - confessed kidnapper Macon Johnson. Dale's nerves are jangled, but Mo, who doesn't mind getting even with Mr. Macon for hurting her loved ones, looks forward to a slam dunk conviction - if everything goes as expected. Of course nothing goes as expected. Macon Johnson sees to that. In no time flat, Macon's on the run, Tupelo Landing's in lockdown, and Dale's brother's life hangs in the balance. With Harm Crenshaw, newly appointed intern, Desperado Detectives are on the case. But it means they have to take on a tough client - one they'd never want in a million years.

A fun new book in this series! Each book seems to get a bit better and more interesting, while still staying true to Mo's voice.

LOVED THIS BOOK! I loved all three books, Three Times Lucky, The ghosts of Tupelo Landing and The Odds of Getting Even. It was very clever and Mo, Dale and Harm are very good detectives!

A cute third installment in this mystery series! The first book: Two Times Lucky, received a Newbery Honor. If small town southern charm, a cast of quirky characters, and a plucky heroine are your thing, be sure to check this series out!

The Desperado Detectives must look for stolen goods, find a lost police car, uncover a secret identity, and prevent murder in this hilarious sequel to Three Times Lucky and The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing. Oh, and find homes for Queen Elizabeth's puppies, do their homework and help run the cafe at the same time. Whew!
