Book Review: Neil Flambe and the Marco Polo Murders by Kevin Sylvester

Book Review: Neil Flambe and the Marco Polo Murders by Kevin Sylvester - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 13, 2012
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Teenage chef extraordinaire, Neil Flambe, plays detective on a murder case that hits a little too close to home. Kidzworld has the book review of Neil Flambe and the Marco Polo Murders by Kevin Sylvester.

Teen/Chef/Detective

Neil Flambe is not your average 14-year-old. Since he was a baby, he’s had an acute sense of smell and a natural flair for cooking. After school, he owns and operates a high-profile restaurant in Vancouver. But his busy life doesn’t stop there. In his spare time, he works as a detective.

The Murdered Chefs

Inspector Nakamura has called upon Neil to help investigate a local crime spree. Someone is murdering some of the city’s top chefs, and there seems to be a pattern. Each victim has had a strange residue on their lips, which makes it likely that the murder weapon was some kind of poison. Notes written in Italian have been left at the scene of the crime. If only the notes made sense, they could offer a clue as to who’s behind the murders.

Marco Polo

While helping on the case, Neil begins to wonder if he’s next. Being an arrogant, rude teenage chef has earned him many enemies over the years. What if he is to be the murderer’s final victim? But with the help of a few others, Neil discovers that the murder pattern has something to do with Marco Polo’s voyage home from the court of Kublai Khan.

The Bottom Line

Neil Flambe and the Marco Polo Murders (book 1) is a great mystery for young readers. It offers unexpected twists and leaves you guessing until the very end. If you love a good mystery, check out the Neil Flambe Capers series by Kevin Sylvester.

What personality?  Okay, well, I'm an INTJ, to get that out of the way. I'm very blunt, and oftentimes I don't care if my honesty offends anyone. I tend to contradict myself a lot, such as how I'm very opinionated, yet super indecisive. People say I'm talented, kind and trustworthy. They also say I'm smart, hard-working and creative, and those I actually agree with. I'm a very cynical person, but I like to be positive around others to help lift their moods.

Okay so any smart person would say they don't like him. And i am a smart person. I hate him. Who would vote for a person who has grabbed women? I am mad the these dumb people have voted for a man that doesn't even know how to run things. Ya he made a company. And he is rich. He called people horrible things. He should be impeached. Hillary Clinton would be a much better president. Thank You For Your Time. If you don't like what you are seeing then please comment on my profile and i would gladly put you in your place. Thank you again. -Delaney

He's the leader of our country, whether we like it or not, and we need to help him, as our government is based on the people. When you wish for him to fail, you're practically wishing for the country to fall... which isn't a good thing for the citizens o.o Okay so i kinda get this but what are you thinking? He is dumb and he should be impeached.
