The Glitter Effect

by Timothy Lewis

Solving a major university’s bicycle theft case will make Hal Tanner a winner, unless failure first proves … deadly.

Hal Tanner vows to be the best sixth grade skateboarder, matching the accomplishments of his older brother, Rick—the newspaper editor at Southern State University. When Rick invites Hal and his best friend, Jerry, to spend a week on campus, dozens of bicycles disappear. Hal and Jerry investigate, skateboarding into the dark underworld of cutthroat thieves. After the boys befriend Wiley—a decorated American soldier injured in the war in Afghanistan—Hal discovers the true meaning of success. But can his new found knowledge save his life, and Jerry’s, before it’s too late?
