Fletcher Moon has never been like other kids. For one thing, he has had to suffer the humiliating nickname "Half Moon" because of his short stature. But the real reason Fletcher is different is that ever since he was a baby, he's had a nose for sniffing out mysteries. And let's just say, it's not a skill that has been appreciated by many people, including his own family. That doesn't bother Fletcher, though. After graduating at the top of his Internet class, he is officially certified as the youngest detective in the world. He even has a silver-plated detective's badge to prove it. Everything is going along fine until two things happen: a classmate hires him to solve a crime, and his prized badge is stolen. All signs point to the town's most notorious crime family, the Sharkeys.
As Fletcher follows the clues, evidence of a conspiracy begins to emerge. But before he can crack the case, Fletcher finds himself framed for a serious crime. To clear his name, he will have to pair up with the unlikeliest of allies and go on the run from the authorities. Fletcher has 12 hours to find the guilty party, or he is the guilty party.



"It's a place many readers will very much enjoy visiting." ( Publishers Weekly)
"A typically funny Colfer offering without the mania of the Artemis Fowl series....Kids who enjoy comic mysteries will have a great time with Half Moon." ( School Library Journal)

Most funny PI noir story ever!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I clicked on my iPod. I loved the Artemis Fowl books, and I almost made the mistake of skipping Half Moon Investigations, because it wasn't Artemis Fowl. What a mistake that would have been.

This book was a refreshing break from fantasy world. It was a blast from start to finish, and I found myself falling in love with all the characters. The voice was so fun – he captured that old noir PI Mike Hammer feel in the body of a young boy, and it worked perfectly.

What's so refreshing about Half Moon Investigations is Colfer's ability to combine so many wacky characters into one story, and have them all work with one another to build an amazing storyline that truly draws the reader in.

noch hörenswerter als lesenswert

Eoin Colfer hat mit Fletcher Moon wieder einmal einen liebenswerten Antihelden geschaffen; der etwas kurz gewachsene Jungdetektiv und Außenseiter stolpert zusammen mit einem coolen Jungschurken über so gefährliche Angelegenheiten wie Talentwettbewerbe und sehr pinke Mädchen. Diese witzige und rührende Geschichte wird von Mr. O'Reilly großartig gelesen. Sein -gut verständlicher- irischer Akzent und die unaufdringliche Textinterpretation machen das Hörbuch noch hörenswerter, als das Buch lesenswert ist. Die Kombination Moon/O'Reilly verdient zahlreiche Fortsetzungen.
