From Publishers Weekly
In the first of these two works by a consummately witty writer, a suburban kid who wants to be a detective teams up with a lonely bride; in the second, a famous but dead actress sends two social outcasts on a quest. Ages 8-12; 10-up.

Like Konigsburg's other books, this is strong on dialogue and insightful suggestions into what makes people -- both the older and younger varieties -- tick.
