Synopsis

A detectiving contest brings Big Red and Old Red to Chicago during the World's Columbian Exposition, but when the man behind the competition is found dead, the only ones who believe that it's murder are Old Red, his brother, and an old friend who could hold the key to the mystery.

Summary

Review Excerpts

"Dufris delivers lively dialogue, high-energy melodrama, and a whole lot of fun for fans." ---AudioFile

"Hockensmith has delivered a fine addition to his Holmes on the Range series.... This should satisfy historical mystery readers who enjoy a tale full of clues leavened with humor." ---Library Journal

"Clever, slapstick-infused." ---Publishers Weekly

Summary

In 1893, the Amlingmeyer boys venture forth from the west in response to a summons from Otto's ("Big Red") publisher—they are to come to Chicago immediately, to the World's Columbian Exposition, and compete with some of the most famous detectives in the world. Set to coincide with the closing days of the first World's Fair and the publication of the story revealing the death of Sherlock Holmes, Gustav ("Old Red") will be competing for the title of World's Greatest Sleuth! Hating train travel and cities, the real draw is the chance to meet up again with the intriguing and elusive Diana Corvus. But the competition has barely begun before there is a murder in "the White City"—the organizer of the contest is discovered face down in the Mammoth Cheese from Canada—and from there, the game is really afoot.
