Synopsis: The disappearance of Britain's leading rock star begins an investigation by the Three Detectives.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8 Emma Cobbett is suspicious when rock star Dazzleman leaves the studio, reluctantly it seems to her, with an unknown man with one ear. When she later discovers that the autograph he had forced on her appears to carry a coded message , Emma decides that Dazzleman has been kidnapped. With the help of her friends, Emma sets out to find the missing superstar. Find him they do, after tracking down musical clues, delving into his mysterious past, and twice breaking into the mansion-fortress where the singer is being held. Brett's first book for young readers is not without problems. A strong feeling of writing down to the audience permeates the early chapters. The narrative flow is frequently interrupted as characters explain word meanings to each other. Since one gathers that these youngsters are about 13 or 14 years old, this is particularly jarring. Indeed, Emma's friend Kimberley is depicted patronizingly throughout, an idiot-savant of Dazzleman trivia. Once the plot gets in gear, things move along briskly to a believable conclusion, and the vocabulary lessons disappear. But getting past those first chapters may be difficult for all but the most undemanding mystery buffs, even with the rock music lure. Brett is a better writer than this book demonstrates. The ending hints at a sequel, and one can only hope that readersand charactersare treated with more respect in future adventures of the ``Three Detectives.''
