In the third uproarious adventure of Wild Willie and his fellow detectives, Willie is thrilled when his old best friend, Kyle, moves back to the neighborhood. His new best friend, Lucy, is not so thrilled, and friction ensues as she and Kyle compete for Willie's attention. But all three can agree on one thing: Kyle's new house is mysterious! The previous occupant-whom they dub Loony Loraine-died in the bedroom that is now Kyle's, and strange noises and voices can be heard from a secret passageway. Is Loony Loraine haunting the premises? Wild Willie, King Kyle, and Lucky Lucy put aside their differences and hatch a plan to catch a ghost. The three young detectives work out the snags in their friendship while bringing the mystery to a successful-and hilarious-solution.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4AIn this companion to The Losers Fight Back (1994) and Wild Willie and King Kyle, Detectives (1993, both Clarion), Willie's old friend Kyle moves back to the neighborhood from Cleveland and his new friend Lucy is jealous. Kyle's new house is a "handyman's special" where the children discover secret passages, an attic filled with junk, and a mystery. Lucy finds out that the former owner was an amateur detective and recluse who died in Kyle's room. The animosity between Kyle and Lucy escalates. Willie eventually figures out that he doesn't have to solve this problem and leaves it to his two friends to work out. Helpfully, a mysterious ghost turns up at Kyle's house. It groans, spouts lines from old movies (e.g., Scarface), and turns out to be a parrotAjust the catalyst needed to reshape the formerly squared-off friends into a happy triad. Readers can no doubt look forward to another book detailing the activities of the newly formed Scarface Detective Agency. Good fun, with up-to-date dialogue, short chapters, and Truesdell's big-nosed, large-eyed, loosely limned characters.ASusan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA
