Crime Through Time #2: Nabbed!: The 1925 Journal of G. Codd Fitzmorganby Bill Doyle
Each book in the Crime Through Time series is hosted by a different child member of the famous Fitzmorgan detective family. While the young sleuth unravels a fictional mystery, readers learn about the real historical setting and actual crime-solving methods from the different eras. In sidebar activities, readers take on the role of assistant, helping to crack the case. Breathtakingly suspenseful but never violent and always age-appropriate, the books read like private investigative journals, with photos, maps, news clippings and crime scene sketches.
In book 2, set in 1925, G. Codd Fitzmorgan arrives at a storm-battered mansion for a party. But more than an engagement celebration seems to be afoot, as our detective unravels a mystery involving a seance, a reckless aviator, and sale of liquor banned under Prohibition.

My class and I read Nabbed! for our mystery genre study. The author masterfully presents an engaging mystery with appealing characterizations and supportive illustrations! My students absolutely LOVED it and are begging for more Doyle titles.
Nabbed! is a book both kids and adults will enjoy. My son and I loved the book! We can't wait for the release of the next book. Great facts woven in the story and loved the historical newspaper!
I bought both this book and Doyle's other book, Swindled, for my nieces and nephews and they were a hit! The kids can not wait for the next book in the series to be published.
Nabbed was a great book for the entire 5th grade at West Ward School in Allegan, MI. The facts and fun of the book were enjoyed by all.It was rated better than Narnia by the students.
