The treacherous hormone-soaked hallways of Franklin Middle School are the setting for this sharp funny noir novel about tough guys and even tougher girls. The Frankis in the clutches of a crime syndicate run by seventh-grader Vinny Mr. Biggs Biggio who deals in forged hall passes and blackmarket candy. Double-cross him and your number is punched by one of his deadly water gun-toting assassins. One hit in the pants and you are in the Outs forever. Matt Stevens is a proud loner with his own code of justice. He's avoided being pulled into Vinny's organization until now: Mr. Biggs has offered him a job he can't resist even if it means bringing down one of his oldest friends. Nominated for an Edgar Award in 2009 The Big Splash revitalizes the noir novel while delivering a terrific addictive mystery that crackles with wit and excitement.
