"e;The Frank"e;is in the clutches of a crime syndicate run by seventh-grader Vinny "e;Mr. Biggs"e; 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 "e;the Outs"e; 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.&#160;<BR><BR>Nominated for an Edgar Award in 2009, <I>The Big Splash</I> revitalizes the noir novel while delivering a terrific, addictive mystery that crackles with wit and excitement.<BR><BR> <p></P>Awards and praise for <I>The Big Splash</I>&#160;<BR><BR>2009 Edgar Award nomination&#160;<BR><BR>"e;Jack Ferraiolo shines a light on middle school and reveals what we've always suspected: It's a sinister place ruled by crime bosses and thugs. <I>The Big Splash</I> will make you laugh out loud."e;&#160;<BR>--Jeff Kinney, #1 <I>New York Times</I> bestselling author of <I>Diary of a Wimpy Kid</I>&#160;<BR><BR>"e;Entertaining and thrilling."e;<BR>--<I>New York Times Book Review</I>&#160;<BR><BR>"e;An ingenious premise: junior high noir. . . .
