A Case Twins adventure
When 17-year-old identical twins Dan and Paul Case pick up a hitchhiker, they think they’re just helping somebody who is down on his luck. Little do they know that their decision will launch them into a wild, life-threatening adventure.
The hitchhiker is Eddie Ridgway, the former bookkeeper of a notorious gangster and bootlegger, recently released from prison after serving time for embezzlement and tax evasion. An insurance investigator is hot on his heels, believing Ridgway is going to collect the missing embezzled funds. Determined to claim the reward for the loot’s return, they set out to find it.
But they’re not the only ones searching for lost stash—two of Ridgway’s former criminal associates, Wilbur and Gimpy Dalton, have also caught wind of his plan and believe Dan and Paul are working with him! The twins must use all their cunning and courage to escape from the Daltons’ dangerous grip to continue their search for the missing loot—and uncover secrets about their family in the process.

The Cash Cache Mystery is a novel tailor-made for young adult readers who love books like The Hardy Boys. There isn’t a single moment in the entire book where you don’t feel entertained as author Dorian Rockwood provides readers with a captivating sleuth mystery featuring two likable young adult protagonists who are bound to win over your hearts. Rockwood sets the tone from the first page, and it’s a fast-paced ride full of twists and turns from there on out. I really enjoyed the dynamic between the brothers. Their contrasting personalities created some good-natured brotherly banter you can’t help but love. Rockwood also brings a sense of tension and intrigue to the action sequences that will have you on the edge of your seat. All in all, this is a brilliant novel for young adult readers! – Pikasho Deka, Readers’ Favorite
I found this book to be intriguing, even though the first few pages of the book were quite confusing. As I delved deeper, I began to grasp what the story was all about. Each page plunged me into the story, and I became keen on finding out the outcome. The plot of the story was creative, and the characters were quite funny and quite scary. The book even had a touch of romance. What I loved most about the book was the determined emotions the twins possessed that made them seek out the embezzled money. They had hoped the reward would go a long way in helping their mother to take care of herself, and I felt a bit sad when the twins found out that their father had been part of the gang when he was younger. You will have to read the book to find out how this affects their mother. Overall, I loved the book and viewed it as an engaging mystery. – LitPick
A fun read very much in the style of the Hardy Boys and other such pulp series…In comparison to the Hardy Boys this has a slightly slower pace (they aren’t in a life threatening situation at the end of every chapter). It still moves along at a good pace and I think it allows for the reader to get to know the twins’ characters. And don’t worry, there is plenty of action and danger. The twins aren’t perfect detectives. They make mistake, misinterpret clues and underestimate criminals. I like them all the more for it. And there is a little more complexity to the criminal Ridgway than you normally find in these types of series… So, if you like Ken Holt, Rick Brant and that other series I’ve already mentioned too many times in this review, give it a try. I think you will like. I sure did. I hope there are more to come. – J. Silver, NetGalley
