The story begins with a train trip from New York to San Francisco in 2906. There was Fitz and Teddy the Bulldog going on a trip and met a girl named Justine Pinkerton. During the course of their journey a man and a little girl had been poisoned for some unknown reason. Then it was discovered that there was some counterfeit money discovered. Now there were questions and a mystery to solve. This type of story would be quite engaging for the Middle School student where the book is set up with the clues and diary style format. It is rather like a graphic novel.

I bought both Swindled and Nabbed for my nieces and nephews, but before turning them over to the kids, read them myself! The books each provide an engaging mystery set in a different time period, and give kids the opportunity to learn about events going on at that time. One particularly nice thing about the books is that they will appeal to a wide variety of children -- some will be taken with the story alone, others will really enjoy the historical angle and learning about the history of forensics and detective skills.

This is a book parents and children will enjoy. We enjoyed reading this as a family and talking about the history included in the book. The only downside was the book ended! We are moving on to Nabbed!

I was looking for good reading selections as gifts for my nieces and nephews and I found this and Doyle's other book, Nabbed. What I got was a great reading selection! These books really captured kids' imaginations and left them waiting for the next book in the series. I am glad I picked it up.
