That brief, blinding dazzle? The blue smudge and lingering stink? The Flash Gang has struck again! They are the most notorious thieves in Pittsburgh, food-stealing crooks the police and newspapers say are highly trained and very dangerous. But eleven-year-old Lewis Carter isn't a thief, he's just homeless and hungry. The Flash is a recipe he invented from bits of his missing father's scientific research. He uses it to pinch his dinners. It's been going pretty well, until now...Now his recipe is stolen, and he is in the clutches of some rather nasty people. Enter tutu-wearing, starry-eyed, and all around extraordinary (she will tell you) Pearl Alice Clavell. She is on a mission to uncover a Nefarious Deed she's convinced involves the Flash Gang. Rescuing Lewis is right up her alley. Truth is, a Nefarious Deed is afoot, one that threatens the entire country. It will take Lewis and Pearl joining forces to save the recipe and themselves against an enemy who will stop at nothing, including kidnapping, and, very possibly, murder.

Pittsburgh, 1935 — times are tough for everyone.
Lewis Carter considers himself a “Streeter” due to his living habits. He is trying to find his father, who left home for a meeting and has never come back. Lewis has chosen this life over being an orphan and being swept into that world. Lewis has created a place to sleep and be safe.
He also has a “trick” to help make it easier to pinch food. He has a recipe from his Dad that creates a blinding blue flash. It is a distraction and makes it hard for people to dee what’s going on around them. This gives him a cover to steal. Rumour is the flash is created by the Flash Gang when these thefts occur.
Lewis meets up with Pearl Alice Clavell one day. Pearl has styled herself after Lola Lavender, a radio show heroine. Pearl wears a pink tutu, pink ballet slippers and pink ribbons in her hair. She lives with her Aunt Gimlick, as her father is off exploring, but Pearl has no affection for her aunt and her aunt has no affection for Pearl and spends her time involved with the local Nazi movement.
Lewis is kidnapped by a bull man named Scruggs. Scruggs has been hired to find the red book that contains the recipes Lewis’ father has developed. Lewis’ father is a professor in Chemistry – explosives stuff.
Pearl steps up to rescue Lewis in her klutzy way. At first Lewis doesn’t want anything to do with Pearl, but in time finds Pearl to be dedicated to helping Lewis find his dad.
The story is full of action and adventure. Kidnapping, espionage, trust, support, independence and more are found woven into the book. There were times that were close calls — but all was good! ( )
