CSI meets Freaks and Geeks.

Cyril MacIntyre, son of firebrand lawyer Andy MacIntyre, smells something fishy about one of his mother's cases. And it's not just that there are sea lice in the coffee. When Cyril starts investigating the death of a millionaire inventor, he gives a whole new meaning to the term "legal aid." Long on smarts and short on—well, just plain short, Cyril tangles with deranged criminals, indulges in a little bit of B & E and confronts the scariest person in the world—his mother.

Vicki Grant is the award-winning author of sixteen books for teens. Her books have been translated into fifteen languages. She lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. For more information, visit
