Dooley Takes the Fall
Gritty, hard-edged, Dooley Takes the Fall is the first in a trilogy of mysteries about a troubled teenager struggling to free himself from the tentacles of his past and the implications of the present conspiracies that surround him. When Dooley discovers the body of a kid, the net begins to close around him. Not many are on his side: in fact, at times he even wonders whether his uncle – a retired cop – thinks he’s guilty again. This is a richly detailed novel aimed at older teens.
