Fourteen-year-old reporters Steve Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson solve their third sports mystery, which features a steroid cover-up at the Super Bowl, a story that certainly relates to recent news events. It's typical of YA books that the sleuthing heroes are given unrealistically adult privileges, but there are enough action and sports celebs to carry the tale. Feinstein has many talents--he knows sports, he's privy to inside sports stories, and he even has a journalistic style that works fairly well for the mystery. Narration, however, is not one of his gifts. His deliver is so flat that a narration coach should bench him. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
