The Lovereading4Kids comment

When a cricketer can’t score runs he soon fall out of favour. Dropped from the Australian national side and all other prestigious teams, Tom Baker calls on Fletcher Smith to help him find his lucky pig’s foot. The search is on and with it comes huge danger for Fletcher as he runs into his archenemy Samson Bolivar and some very unusual kinds of trouble. The world of sport provides a strong background to this action packed detective story. Try this series as the books are quite short and real page-turners. Also released to coincide with this title is Playing with Fire.


Fletcher Smith: Dangerous Games by Jonathan Harlen

Fletcher Smith has inherited his father's one-man Sports Detective Agency after his parents were involved in a car accident engineered by global sports management guru, Samson Bolivar. Now, with the help of sidekick Frank the Turk, Fletcher has sworn to expose Bolivar and thwart his evil dealings. Hired by rising cricket star Tom Baker to retrieve his lucky pig's foot mascot, Fletcher finds himself fighting for his life in the dangerous sports underworld.

To crack this case, he'll need to battle killer sea wasps, a ruthless hitman and a deranged tennis prodigy.

About the Author

Jonathan Harlen

Jonathan Harlen lives on the far north coast of New South Wales with his
wife and far too many children. He was born in New Zealand and still supports the All
Blacks, except when they lose. For his most recent book, Ziggy and the Plugfish, he spent months researching the Pacific Ocean, which he describes as “a big wet mess with lots of fish in it.” He also visited the centre of the earth, but none of the pubs were open, so he came home.
