MacIntyre, son of firebrand lawyer, Andy MacIntyre, smells something fishy about one of his mother's
cases. And it's not just that there are sea lice in the coffee. When Cyril starts investigating the death of a
millionaire inventor, he gives a whole new meaning to the term "legal aid." Long on smarts and short on,
well, just plain short, Cyril tangles with deranged criminals, indulges in a little bit of B & E and confronts
the scariest person in the world, his mother.
A delightful, page-turning stand-alone sequel to Quid Pro Quo...This mix of wisdom beyond his years and
familiarly realistic teen concerns makes Cyril a winning, engaging narrator.
