Timmy Failure, founder, president, and CEO of the greatest detective agency in town, perhaps the nation, is about to crack the biggest case of his generation: a school competition to find a stolen globe.
His name is Failure. Timmy Failure. And his detective agency is on the verge of global domination. Global riches. Global fame. And yet the gods keep throwing him curveballs for starters, academic probation. The coveted Miracle Report is the key to everything, including a good grade. It's dirty business. It's best you know nothing. But one thing is for sure that Timmy Failure will be triumphant again!
In this fourth book of Timmy Failure's memoirs, Timmy is forced to take his investigation into stolen charity funds on the road when his mother forces him to help her boyfriend move to Chicago. They are on the road in a cross-country trip that includes Timmy's mom, Total the polar bear, Doorman Dave, and criminal mastermind Molly Moskins. It's a world gone mad, where good becomes bad, and Timmy Failure is a condemned man.
This book was never meant to exist. No one needs to know the details. Just know this: there's a Merry, a Larry, a missing tooth, and a teachers' strike that is crippling Timmy Failure s academic future. Worst of all, Timmy is banned from detective work. It's a conspiracy of buffoons. He recorded everything in his private notebook, but then the manuscript was stolen. If this book gets out, he will be grounded for life. Or maybe longer. And will Timmy's...
While his mother and doorman Dave celebrate their wedding, Timmy visits Florida where he forges a new partnership with Dave's nephew, Emilio, when a surprise newcomer shows up and he encounters a thieving six-toed cat.
When his memoirs are being turned into a movie, Timmy must deal with a buffoonish movie director, while his polar bear business partner Total wants to be reunited with his family and Timmy's father is back in town working at a bar.
