It's the middle of the night. Junior high starts tomorrow. Madison Kincaid jolts awake to the sound of a phone call from the jailhouse. It's a new case for her father, a renowned defense attorney: Someone's been accused of murdering Madison's second-grade teacher. But no body has turned up. Bent on becoming a lawyer just like her dad, Madison's determined to help him crack the case.

At school the next day, Madison finds she's got not one but two mysteries on her plate. Her best friend, Ann, is nowhere to be found. With the help of Jake Stephenson, a fellow soccer player at Pettygrove Junior High, Madison hits the sidewalks of Portland, Oregon, ready to find out just what's hiding behind these two vanishing acts.

About the Author


Phillip Margolin has written sixteen New York Times bestsellers, including his latest novels, Supreme Justice and Fugitive. Each displays a unique, compelling insider’s view of criminal behavior, which comes from his long background as a criminal defense attorney who has handled thirty murder cases. Winner of the Distinguished Northwest Writer Award, Margolin lives in Portland, Oregon.

Praise for Vanishing Acts…


“Best-selling adult author Margolin teams up with his daughter in this youth debut that pulls a few Nancy Drew parallels into a wholly contemporary story. A budding romance and vivid court scenes give readers more reasons to hope for future installments of Madison’s adventures.”
