Meet the new Nancy Drew, Jex Malone
Follow along as Jessica (aka Jex) is forced to live with her father for the entire summer. After years and years of violating court order, Jex has two options: Stay with her dad or spend the summer in the Big House, serving time for her violation of custody. Even though the choice is obvious, Jex still is not ready to spend her vacay with a man she hasn’t talked to for the past 10 years.
When Jex arrives at her dad’s house, it is just as dreary and boring as she predicted. The No. 1 house rule? No sleuthing! Jex’s father is a Detective and since she was a young child, so Jex has always been getting into trouble trying to solve the mysteries. And this summer is no exception. Her major goal is to close a case of a missing girl that was never solved—a case that led her father close to obsession and was a huge factor in her parents’ divorce.
Jex finds friends in the most unlikely way and confides in them to help her out. Soon, the gang gets tangled in a web of lies, deceit and scary facts and the only way out of it is to believe the impossible.
C.L. Gaber and V.C. Stanley combine their journalistic experiences and knowledge of criminal cases to create this heart-pounding novel that will leave you wanting more. We love that the book uses classic sleuths like Nancy Drew to help readers get a better understanding of who Jex really is and why she acts the way she does.
Who is really behind the missing child case? What really caused Jex’s parents to split up? The only way to find out is to pick up a copy of Jex Malone by C.L. Gaber and V.C. Stanley when it hits shelves June 18.
