Ebook Deals of the Day: £2.16 “Flanagan, Underage Detective” by Jaume Ribera
His name is Juan Anguera. He’s a fourteen year old student, living in the turbulent environment of suburban Barcelona. But everybody calls him Flanagan, and he’s an amateur detective. Big cases? Well, not really. He can find your lost pet, or maybe find out who’s sending you those anonymous love poems. Until one of his simple cases turns out to be much more serious and dangerous. Flanagan finds himself doing the work of a real detective, all the while leaving behind his own childhood. And to make everything all the more complicated, he has to deal with his first experiences of heartache. His only weapons in the face of danger are his iron-clad sense of humor, his fast legs, and his clever mind.
Published to great acclaim in Spain, and winner of the country’s most important Award, the “Premio Nacional de Literatura Juvenil”, this is the book that created a new mystery genre: the teen noir.
