Excerpt:

Prologue
The light from the street lamps made gray circles on the sidewalk and pavement all around her.  Maisy rested against the building, adjusted her fedora hat, and pulled her last cherry lollipop from her pocket. Distracted by the sweet scent of her candy, she didn’t notice her dog’s low growls that should have warned her of the approach of someone on a bike who was rapidly coming toward her.  Suddenly, she heard a low, gruff voice call her name. She looked up in time to see a paper being tossed into one of the circles of light on the ground. She pushed herself off of the building and made her way toward the lamp post. With unsteady fingers, Maisy reached down to pick up the note.  She opened the crinkled paper and saw it was smudged with dirt from where it had rested on the sidewalk.  It only took her a moment to read the note.

If you ever want to see your lollipops again, forget about the missing mice.


-The Black Boot

Her eyes narrowed into tiny slits.  The Black Boot, as he had taken to calling himself, appeared to be nothing but a thief.  Maisy didn’t know how, but she was going to take him down. Of course, she had to figure out who he was first.  It was bad enough that he had stolen the school’s mascots, but now he had admitted to stealing her collection of cherry lollipops.  And nobody got away with stealing Maisy’s cherry lollipops.
