Author: Bruce Hale
Chet Gecko is hired by a fellow fourth-grader to find her missing brother, and uncovers a plot involving a Gila monster’s revenge upon the school football team.
Chet Gecko loves a good mystery. Almost more than he loves his fee—stinkbug pie.

If Chet doesn’t solve the case fast, the entire school could be humiliated. Worst of all, Chet might not get his fee. And Chet’s hungry. . .
