KIRKUS REVIEW

Ever-canny Nate outwits his would-be nemesis Finley when he proves that there's no such thing as a phony clue if you're sharp enough to interpret it. Starting with a torn scrap of paper containing the letters VITA, Nate pieces together an unsigned inVITAtion (""Come to my house at three""), then shows up at Finley's at the appointed time to show that he knows who set him up. Nate's lines have been snappier, but he survives Finley's challenge with his title--beginning readers' favorite sleuth--still intact.
