There’s more to most things than meets the eye—or nose—as code-cracking, wisecracking girl detective Ruby Redfort discovers in her third adventure.

Wild animals roaming around Twinford? Ruby Redfort has heard the rumors, but she doesn’t quite believe them. She’s got enough on her mind doing wilderness survival training with the secret agency Spectrum, and her bad eyesight isn’t helping. But as high society buzzes with news of a very exclusive perfume formula coming to town, and some priceless jewelry goes missing, Ruby begins to sense a sinister plot in the works. Can our favorite action hero sniff out the clues in time to keep Twinford safe from evil scents? Well, let’s say this is one of those times when you gotta forget the rules and follow your nose to survive.

      This book is another Ruby Redfort great, so it kind of goes without saying: Read It!!! It's a suspenseful thriller mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat as Ruby attempts to do it again and outsmart the villains in this fast-paced adventure. Why is she doing this? Well, you know, she's just your average teenage genius code cracker secret agent! I recommend this book to readers 10+ and mature readers a little younger because it can get intense.
