Ace Wonder: Message from a Dead Man

Synopsis: Ace Wonder is a 10-year-old detective, struggling to find a storyline for his latest novel. When his path tangles with Derek Morton, a simple family mystery becomes a very real case of corporate espionage, scientific discovery, and one coldblooded killer.

Give it back.

Give what back?

I said, give it back!

Make me.


There you go.

Well, thanks.

Look out!


Dad, come here, quick!




Are you all right?

What happened?

I-- I saw the whole thing

and man, it was something.

Eddie-- Eddie's been needing

someone to do that...

to him for a long time.


Well, Eddie got to picking

on your boy, and could have messed him up.

Then this guy shows up

and bam, bam, bam!

Just like that,

it was all over.

Look, y'all eat up,

meals are on me today.

That's very generous,

thank you.

No, it's nothing, really.

If there's anything I can do

for you guys, just let me know.

Well, you wouldn't happen to

know a good mechanic, would you?


Bobby John Dolan, the best

and only mechanic in town.

You work on big rigs?

I do today.

Yeah, that could be bad.

I've seen this before but,

only in a book...

and it was a short book.


This big red thing in here

I believe is the engine...

Thank you...

for helping me out.

No problem.

When you were in the restaurant,

I overheard you talking about your grandfather...

and the clues he'd left you.

I'd like to interview you

and get some of the details of the story.

We don't have a lot of time, so,

if you'd open it up right away, that'd be really helpful.

We'll be leaving

in just a little bit...

so I wouldn't worry about it

too much, if I were you.

Why not?

Because you'd only

have half the story.

How frustrating would that be?

Mm, it's very considerate

of you.


It's gonna take me all day

to find a starter for this.

All night to put her in

and probably a good part of tomorrow, too.

You folks are gonna

need a place to stay.

You wouldn't happen to own

the local motel, too, would you?
