The second, Green Streak, is an even better book. The plot, set in New York City, is fast, solid and tight. The main characters, Zeke and Pow Wow (who's Chinese-American, not American Indian) are smart, conscientious and highly likeable.

Guess that means we need to go out and get some of Daniel J. Turns out they're responsible for a series of books - by which I mean two - involving an inline-skating teen detective named Zeke Armstrong. Oddly enough, I write all Unfair Park items in collaboration with my 3-year-old son. So we have something in common after all. - -Robert Wilonsky.

The Second in the Zeke Armstrong Mysteries-Zeke Armstrong goes to New York for the Big Apple Inline Skate-Off.. only to find malice in Manhattan. After another racer robs an aging heiress in Central Park, the police call it a mugging. 13 year old Zeke suspects that it's part of a more sinister plot. Will he figure out what's up in time to save the wealthy woman and skate the final race, or will the bad guys stop Zeke in his tracks?
Green Streak is the second book in the Zeke Armstrong Mystery series. Fun, fast paced and just right for the 9-14 set, this book has it all...dangerous villains, an amateur sleuth, New York City, a damsel in distress, and of course in-line skating! Zeke Armstrong is off on another whirl-wind adventure...while visiting New York for the Big Apple In-Line Skate Off with his friend Pow Wow (and Pow Wow's Parents) the boys befriend an older woman at a refreshment stand and no sooner have they met her, she is being mugged and knocked out by a very strange in-line skater...dressed all in green! While Pow Wow stays with Mrs. Winthrop (his dad is a doctor after all), Zeke races off after the purse snatcher only to find that his is rather a strange purse snatcher after, he doesn't just take the money and ditch the purse...there is much more involved in all of this and Zeke has just taken his first steps (skates?) toward solving this mystery!

Overall, it's a very exciting, fast-paced mystery that has just the right mix of clues, action and danger that will keep you wanting to read until you reach the end...and even then you'll want more! I certainly found it hard to put down...in fact, I didn't. I read this in two hours and enjoyed it immensely (and I'm 37)! I feel that this book is ideally suited for middle-grade readers (3-6) and believe that it would also make a suitable for younger readers as a read aloud (provided they are able to enjoy a read aloud story without pictures), as the chapters are relatively short. I'm giving Green Streak five stars and two thumbs up, it's a traditional mystery in a modern wrapper that I think reads of all ages can enjoy! One final note: this second book in the series was published in 2004 and there have been no additional books published for this series since (that's 4 years) so my best guess is that there won't be any more and we are all very disappointed about that. We'd absolutely LOVE to read more of Zeke Armstrong's Adventures.
Thirteen year old friends Zeke "Sherlock" Armstrong and Richard "Pow Wow" Gao are participating in the Big Apple Inline Skate-Off. Zeke's parents make their way home from overseas and his Uncle Dane is delayed; Pow Wow's parents supervise the two teens. While waiting on a line to buy refreshments, an elderly woman Ms. Natalie talks to the lads about sundry things including taking her medicine.
Not much later, Zeke notices that a guy dressed in all green on inline skates races towards Ms. Natalie. The "Jittery Man" as Zeke calls him knocks the senior citizen down and flees with her purse. While Pow Wow attends to the unconscious Ms. Natalie, Zeke chases after the Jittery Man because he knows that his comatose new acquaintance needs her medicine immediately. Zeke tricks the Jittery Man and his accomplice regaining the medicine bottle, but at the cost of his skates. The thugs come after a recovering Ms. Natalie so that they can steal her fortune, but the two teens stand in their way.
Think Hardy Boys and you have a reasonable indication of Zeke and Pow Wow though the stars of GREEN STREAK are unique in their own manner and Zeke is more a solo sleuth. The story line goes as fast as the guys go on their inline skate, which is at a terrific rate of speed. The sleuthing duo makes a fine refreshing pair as they try to keep Ms. Natalie safe whether it's skating around Manhattan or riding to Roosevelt Island. Young adults will appreciate this wonderful teen thriller and seek other colorful tales like the award winning RED CARD and the upcoming WHITE OUT.

Zeke Armstrong and his friend Pow Wow Gao are in New York City for the annual Big Apple Inline Skate-Off. After the qualifying race, they witness the random mugging of a woman they had just met. When Zeke follows the thief, he's convinced there's more to it then a normal crime. Is the victim still in danger? What about Zeke and the Gaos? And will this mystery interfere with the big race the next day?
This book is perfect for the sports buff or mystery fan. Between the race and the mystery, there are plenty of action sequences. I got sucked in and read more then I had intended one night. I had a few plot points figured out before Zeke, but I was caught off guard by many of the twists. And it had me ready to cheer at the end. Zeke is a fun character, and watching him get himself out of some pretty hairy situations is certainly entertaining.
Kids looking for some action in what they read will love both of the books in this fun series. I may be over the target age group, but I'm already looking forward to Zeke's next adventure. These books are certain to entertain anyone looking for a good story.
When my ten year old wouldn't come to the dinner table a couple of nights ago, I went to his room to find his nose buried in this book, which his aunt had passed on to him. He finished it off before bedtime that night, said it was one of the best mysteries he'd ever read, so I decided to see what the fuss was about. I picked it up yesterday morning, planning to read a chapter or two at a time, but I couldn't put it down. It may be written for 9 to 12 year olds, but even I thought it was one of the best mysteries I'd ever read. When Ben got home from school yesterday afternoon, he and I spent an hour discussing Zeek and Pow Wow's adventures here in the city. I just ordered Red Card, the first in the series, and am looking forward to sharing that experience with my son as well.
