You could be like Fletcher Moon in Half Moon Investigations. Fletcher is a twelve-year-old private eye. He’s not just your average wannabe…he has actually graduated from an internet detective course. Fletcher regularly takes on cases from his friends at school. When April Devereux, class pretty girl and “head of an entire tribe of Barbies” hires Fletcher to find out who took her lock of pop star’s hair that she bought on eBay, the case seems pretty easy. The clues lead Fletcher to the Sharkeys, a family of kid trouble -makers that are well known for their bad boy behavior.
As Fletcher continues his investigation, though, things begin looking fishy. In fact, Fletcher starts to suspect a conspiracy…April is not looking like the innocent victim. But before Fletcher can crack the case, he’s framed for a pretty serious crime himself. His only ally, one of the Sharkeys. Fletcher and Red Sharkey team up to clear their names and find the real guilty party. Will anybody listen to Fletcher and Red or are they presumed guilty despite the evidence?

You too can get detective tips from Fletcher’s Internet School, the Bernstein Academy. “As a PI, you’ll need to keep your wits about you and stay out of trouble. In this job, you put your life on the line every day. Take it from me; if you want to survive you’d better learn a few tricks. ”
