This is a quick reading, hard-boiled, noir style mystery with a super believable teen girl voice and likeable characters. If you were into Veronica Mars you should give this book a try. Scarlett is THE BEST. I loved her voice, the snarky detective-story-style one liners, and the sisterly dynamic. I'm hoping this is a series!

A funny, fearless girl detective, her adorable nine-year-old client, and a mystery that pits her against a scary cult of people with weird eyes who believe in djinn and magical ancient treasures. I defy you to put this book down once you begin.
