Arts and Thefts Read Online Free - Middle school retrieval specialist Jeremy Wilderson must team up with preteen private detective Becca Mills once again to solve his most mind-boggling case yet in this action-packed MAX novel.
Ahh, summer vacation! Jeremy Wilderson, Scottsville Middle School’s first (and only) retrieval specialist, is enjoying a slower-than-usual season of retrieving (NOT stealing) lost objects in order to help the under thirteen population of Scottsville.
But crime doesn’t take a vacation! And when sabotage strikes Scottsville’s event of the year—the Summer Art Show—threatening to ruin the burgeoning painting career of Jeremy’s best friend, Case, it’s up to Jeremy to figure out what’s going on. Of course, his archrival Becca Mills, who just happens to think Jeremy, Case, and their friend Hack are involved in the crime, is also looking into it.
Jeremy has only a few precious hours to stop the sabotage before more contest entries—and kids’ dreams—are slashed and burned.
But Jeremy’s specialty is retrieval…not detective work! The only solution is to team up with Becca to solve the case, something Jeremy’s not exactly thrilled to do. Not to mention, he has to keep his alliance with Becca a secret from Case and Hack, who will disown him if they see him working with the enemy. Somewhere between being stuck inside an air vent and slathered in red paint, Jeremy has to wonder: is he in over his head?

Fantastic! More of a traditional mystery than book one (which is more heist/con). Both were terrific. I hope there will be more books in this series - highly recommend for mystery fans!

This was one of my favorite books to read. It is full of wit (with a bit of sarcasm from the characters) and humor I highly recommend this book.

I love a good heist story. I'll sit down for an episode of Leverage any day even though I've watched the series through several times. That's what made me enjoy Under Locker and Key so much, and why I was so excited to get my hands on an ARC of Arts and Thefts. This book is not a heist; it's more...
