Cam is on a mystery again. It was a nice warm day at the mall. Then the alarm went off. Beep beep beep! A man came running out of a jewelry store. The police catch him and Cam and Eric watch as the jewelry store owner looked at the man and said “That’s not him.” Then the man walked out of the mall. Cam and Eric decide to follow him because they think he is the thief. They follow him to a mysterious house. Read to find out if the man is the thief or not!

I like this book because it felt like I was almost in the book because it had so much details. I dislike Mr. Parker because he wasn't in the book that much and he didn't help solve the robbery. My favorite part was when Eric left to look for help. Cam was left with Howie, Eric’s baby brother Eric took forever to look for help I was getting nervous. I wondered if Eric got caught by the bad guy or bad guys.

I recommend this book to kid of all ages because Cam Jansen is a great book series to read. I rate this book a five star book. I give the book five stars because it took me inside it.
