Review: MURDER IN THE 4TH HOUR by Michael Gregory

A dead teacher. But not just one dead teacher, but two in the 4th hour period of a high school. 

Doyle is a young high school kid with a brilliant and incisive mind. In fact, he can be a little too smart for his own good. But he just might be the one who can solve this complex case. And when I say "complex," it is REALLY complex. 

He, along with his best friend, Jack, will need to counteract administration and a police captain father to solve this bloody case. 

I thought the idea of a kid detective was pretty cool. Doyle certainly had some funny language, like he was Sherlock Holmes or something. Why couldn't he just talk like a regular kid? The mystery and investigation wasn't that interesting either. All the two really talked about was school and the other kids. Well, the murder did take place at the school. But the story was a little lengthy and a little too dull at times. I liked how this was narrated by Jack, who was the more laid back and typical teen, rather than Doyle, who was uptight and superior. 

My rating: 3 stars
