Reviews for Mystery of the Third Lucretia : Library Edition

School Library Journal Reviews 2008 September

Gr 5-8-- Krista Sutton's dramatic narrative style adds life to this slight mystery (Viking, 2008) by Susan Runholt. Fourteen-year-old friends Kari and Lucas are budding artists who like to travel. When they witness the same man copying two Rembrandts on different continents, they are convinced it is more than a coincidence. Using silly disguises and not-so-subtle investigations, they set out to learn what he is up to and soon find themselves in danger. Sutton's tone and inflections capture just the right teenage attitude, adding some believability to somewhat artificial dialogue. This easy-read mystery, devoid of violence, will be enjoyed by reluctant readers.--Karen T. Bilton, Mary Jacobs Memorial Library, Rocky Hill, NJ
