Robert Martin writes books with his granddaughter, Keira Ely. Together they create The Keira and Papa Detective Agency Series. This book series not only helps a grandparent connect with a grandchild by solving the mysteries of crimes, but also to discuss the mysteries of a new culture and some of the mysteries of life.
The special bond between Keira and Papa shines as they join together to solve their latest crime — The Case of the Golden Frog.
Keira is a twelve-year-old. She has red hair and hot pink glasses, and she dresses like Pippi Longstocking. However, she is not as confident as her fashion statement suggests.
Her dreams of being a heroine are overshadowed by a cloud of fear that percolates within her extraordinary imagination.
Her grandfather, Papa, is just the opposite. His dress is conservative, but before he retired he thrived on adventure. He was a spy!
When Keira finds a magic hat that gives her astonishing powers, Papa invites her to join him in his new spy agency. That is when the Keira and Papa Detective Agency is formed.
The trust, teasing, and mutual affection they have for each other carry them through a stream of disappointments and challenges as they attempt to solve the mystery.
In The Case of the Golden Frog, book 2 of the Keira & Papa Detective Agency series, “Conquistadors,” a treacherous gang from Colombia, has entered the equally treacherous jungle of Panama in search of a priceless secret treasure hidden in a sacred burial ground. Keira and Papa had only just solved book 1’s The Case of the Missing Crown Jewels when the Director of the CIA gave them this new mission.
For Keira, there are three mysteries: Find a secret treasure buried in the treacherous jungle and before the dangerous Conquistadors do, undcover the matriarchal society of the Cuna Indians, and overcome the harmful instinct of jealousy.
Tag along with Keira and Papa along with her American Girl Doll, Kaya, and mischievous dog, Waffles as they weave their way through snake, panther, and scorpion infested jungles trying to avoid equally dangerous humans, one of whom may be hiding among them.
