Overview

Dani Deucer is a precocious twelve-year-old girl who wants to be a detective. She and her sister Stephanie are spending the summer in Three Rivers, California when Dani meets hobo Mott Simon. At first Dani is afraid of Mott because he's different--he spends most of his time digging up the town's flowerbeds! But when Mott is accused of murder Dani sets out to prove that sometimes first impressions can be wrong. Like Harper Lee's classic <I>To Kill A Mockingbird, A Matter of Justice</I> is a young girl's exploration of what it means to be different. It's also an exciting mystery that will keep readers guessing to the last page.

Editorial Reviews

Doran William Cannon
Steve Alcorn cares and it shows as his teen girl detective, Dani Deucer, explores some of the same questions facing his own daughter, Dani. This is a good read for kids and adults alike.
Piers Anthony
Steve Alcorn is one of those writers who deserves success ... His books for young readers have a nice flair ... I was favorably impressed ... She thinks and acts just like a girl ... It was a surprise, though the hints were there.
M. Kenyon Charboneaux
Dani Deucer is a worthy successor to Nancy Drew and Mr. Alcorn can be proud of the book and of his creation. Hopefully he'll write several more of these for today's young adults to read and remember with happiness 50 years later, the way I remember the books of my teenage years way back there in the last century which is also, coincidentally, the last millennium.

Steve Alcorn has written a winner. Dani is spending the summer with her family and meets Mott, who is later accused of a crime. Dani's ambition is to become a detective so she starts to prove Mott's innocence. It was very clever of Dani when she proved to the police just how she knew Mott was innocent. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a mystery.
