The Odds of Getting Even

Description
Humor and action abound in the next Mo & Dale Mystery--follow-up to the Newbery Honor winner andNew York Times bestseller Three Times Lucky 
The trial of the century has come to Tupelo Landing, NC. Mo and Dale, aka Desperado Detectives, head to court as star witnesses against Dale's daddy--confessed kidnapper Macon Johnson. Dale's nerves are jangled, but Mo, who doesn't mind getting even with Mr. Macon for hurting her loved ones, looks forward to a slam dunk conviction--if everything goes as expected. Of course nothing goes as expected. Macon Johnson sees to that. In no time flat, Macon's on the run, Tupelo Landing's in lockdown, and Dale's brother's life hangs in the balance. With Harm Crenshaw, newly appointed intern, Desperado Detectives are on the case. But it means they have to take on a tough client--one they'd never want in a million years. 
For everyone who's already fallen for Mo and Dale, and for anyone who's new to Tupelo Landing, The Odds of Getting Even is a heartwarming story that perfectly blends mystery and action with more serious themes about family and fathers, all without ever losing its sense of humor. 
* "As always, Turnage's tale is full of heart and perfect for reading on a front porch." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review 
* "Another rewarding adventure . . .The writing lulls you with laughter, then occasionally blindsides you with unexpected tenderness."--Booklist, starred review
