    In Super Sleuth and The Bare Bones, by Jackie Vivelo a team of young sleuths solved a 100-year-old case. The case was about two missing people and a robbery. A series of confusing events led the young sleuths to find clues about the robbery and the bodies. The police found the bodies in the foundation of a college building. The police found one body before the investigation and one body during the investigation. The bodies were identified as the two-missing people from the 100 year-old case. One of the bodies found was most likely killed by the thief trying to knock him out so that he would not identify him to the police. The second body found, the thief, had broken his neck possibly in his attempt to flee.The book Super Sleuth and the Bare Bones begins with the sleuths being asked by Beagle's Aunt Irene to help solve a mystery. A body had been found in the foundation of one of the buildings at the college where she worked. The body had been there since 1890. She knew that four people connected with the college had disappeared in 1890. She had a note that referred to people by their nicknames. By using logic, Ellen and Beagle, the 12-year-old super sleuths of the Beagle Detective Agency were able to match the nicknames with the real names. `Stoney' was Ralph and `Pop' was James. When they got to the college, they discovered that Aunt Irene's house had been broken into, and all her college files from 1890 had been taken, aside from a single torn memo. Using logic, they figured out that the Treasurer of the building fund that was responsible for putting up the building where the bodies were found, was Brandon Welles. When the police investigated the skeleton, they found another skeleton nearby, and also learned that the first skeleton had a broken skull. By carefully looking at the clue, and using logic, the detectives were able to solve the case. They identified the bodies and even found the pile of missing gold coins that were at the heart of the matter. It turned out that Pop and Professor Bevis were going to play a practical joke on the college. The college was very short of money, but Pop and Bevis had raised a large sum in gold coins from one of the graduates. They were planning on `discovering' the coins under a stone statue of a cougar. However, Pop decided to steal the coins. After he and Bevis had buried them, he hit Bevis on the head, breaking his skull and killing him. Then he dropped the body in the hole where the foundation of the building was going to be poured. He fell into the hole himself, broke his neck and died.There are only a few main characters in this book. Ellen and Beagle are the main characters. They are both 12 years old and good friends. They are partners in the "Beagle Detective Agency". Beagle's real name is Charles. We are never told how the nickname Beagle came about. Beagle loves to eat. He also is good at figuring out logic puzzles, which is his main job in the detective agency. Ellen is better at taking notes, and investigating. Ellen is the narrator of the story. Together, Beagle and Ellen make a good team. Beagle's Aunt Irene works at the College, but we really don't know what she does there. All in all, I would have to say that the character descriptions in this book are really very hazy and incomplete. This is the third book in the "Super Sleuth" series, and maybe we are given better descriptions in the first book.I think Super Sleuth and the Bare Bones was a really, really good book. Since it is the mystery that is important here, not the characters, the very sketchy way the characters are described is not that important. By summing up the clues for you the characters help you solve the mysteries. Super Sleuth not only helps by giving the reader "pre-made-clues" they also give the reader charts finding who's who, who's where, and why. The author was really nice and put in side mysteries for practice.
