Duncan lives with his eccentric aunt, whose plans for him don’t exactly gel with his own. He’s not very interested in school, and would rather be a detective like the ones he reads about. If only he had a mystery to solve.... What are the chances that a bank robber would actually run into Duncan making his exit from the bank?
Full of twists and turns, laugh-out-loud adventure, and even a cobra and an alligator, this hilarious tale will keep readers guessing until the very last page. This fun, fast-paced romp is loosely based on a true story from Texas in the early 2000s
