Fletcher Moon is a detective. But he's no ordinary detective: he also happens to be a 12-year-old boy. Fletcher's mum and dad worry about his obsession with solving crimes, and his teachers laugh at him. But it's not until a series of mysterious crimes unfold at Fletcher's school that his problems really begin. Fletcher decides to flex his detecting muscles, and with the help of the notorious Red Sharkey - who's no stranger to the police himself - he is determined to solve his first real case. But Fletcher and his unlikely ally are in much greater danger than they bargained for.

Fletcher "Half" Moon is only 12, yet he is an accomplished investigator. Having graduated from an Internet course offered by a prestigious detective school, he proudly carries his certified detective's badge. He is must continually prove himself to others. Sean Patrick Reilly narrates this story, set in his native Ireland, with aplomb. The mix of hard-boiled detective and Irish brogue is a delightful combination, adding to the many humorous situations. Using elements of the detective story, Colfer offers Half Moon as a new and fresh character for preteens. Reilly's pace and intonation are just right in this contemporary school-yard mystery, and Half Moon is a great young alternative to Colfer's Artemis Fowl series.
