Review: It is spring, and there are only a few days of school left. Life is good. Whiz Tanner and Joey Dent are riding their bikes, when they find a pigeon. What they find out a few days later is that the pigeon is wounded, and attached to its leg is a coded message. Whiz Tanner immediately gets excited. He has had his own detective agency along with Joey Dent for quite some time, and they always love a new mystery on their hands. Though the police say to stay out of things, they still get their hands dirty and stick their noses into police business. The Tanner-Dent Detective Agency is back with a new case to solve. Can Agent M and K figure out what is wrong with the bird, and what the coded message is saying? Or, are they going to lose this mystery to the police? It’s a race to the end. Who do you think is going to win? The police, Tanner-Dent Detective Agency, or are they going to combine forces once, and figure it out together? Read The Case of the Wounded Pigeon to find out. This book is a second in the series written by Fred Rexroad, a very suspenseful and mysterious author.
This book is really amazing, and at parts, it actually pushed me of my chair. Literally! My favorite part in this story is when Joey perfects his high-speed dismount off his bike into Whiz’s backyard. It amazed me that Joey could actually get his high-speed dismount right. He could never dismount correctly without breaking a finger… or two. I also like the part when the two fugitives, get caught looking for the treasure. They get busted for it, and Whiz and Joey enjoy the rest of their summer peacefully- at least for a few hours until the next day when, Whiz calls Joey with their secret code. Joey groans and tells his parents he has another mystery to solve. I think that Fred Rexroad is an amazing author and that he has a great sense of humor. I can’t wait to read The Case of the Mysterious Countdown, the third book in the Tanner-Dent Agency series!
