Bestselling Lemony Snicket’s fast-talking writing is brilliantly on display in this wise cracking detective story which is full of references to the great detective writers of the past. Thirteen year Snicket is apprenticed to S. Theodora Markson, a second rate detective who is investigating a theft in small and unusual town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea. It doesn’t take Snicket long to start working for himself piecing together all the clues in a topsy-turvy world with a host of brilliantly ridiculous characters. November 2012 Book of the Month.
In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about.
He started by asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read. This is the first volume.
