[Review] You Can Run: A Robyn Hunter Mystery by Norah McClintock

April 29, 2012

McClintock, Norah.  You Can Run. 216pp.  Darby Creek, April 1, 2012.   9780761390725.  This second installment of a new mystery series, “The Robyn Hunter Mystery Seriess” finds teen private investigator, Robyn Hunter, in search of a missing classmate Trisha Carnegie.  Trisha’s mother was dying and she was having trouble coping with her mother’s illness.  She did not get along with her stepfather, was not a member of the popular crowd, and had become a repetitive runaway.  When Trisha ran away this last time, Robyn felt partially responsible because of the confromtation she’d had with her at school where she called Trisha weird and told her that no one cared about her.    Robyn got involved with the search after Trisha’s stepfather reached out to Robyn’s dad for help because he owned a private detective agency.  The deeper Robyn becomes  involved in the case the more truths are revealed about Trisha’s life, and the more dangerous the investigation becomes.  Why is Trisha always running away?  What has caused Robyn to be in danger?  Will Trish come back home?  I think this book can stand alone even though it is part of a  series.  The timeless story will make a good addition to my library”s mystery collection.
