  青少年版的《達文西密碼》  「紅外套少女偵探團」一戰成名之作!
  總是大驚小怪的蘇菲、活潑俏皮的蕾貝卡和超級資優生瑪格莉特,是紐約天主教女校─聖韋洛尼加的學生,三位超級好朋友,跟其他的中學女生一樣,除了上課、讀書、分享心事、聊男生的話題,以及偶爾做做白日夢之外,生活中倒也沒啥波折。
  直到有一天,蘇菲在課堂上看到對面教堂的窗戶上出現一張女人的蒼白面孔!以為是幽靈的蘇菲尖叫出聲,卻止不住好奇心猜想,那女人到底是誰?又為什麼會突然在那裡露面?
  三位少女決定一探究竟,卻意外捲入一場危險的解謎之旅。
  為了幫助那位奇怪的老太太破解前人留下的各條線索,尋回傳說中聖維洛尼加曾觸碰過、能使人禱告應驗的羅卡曼多指環,讓老太太重新與失聯多年的女兒重逢。三人找了新朋友莉安一起加入。
  四位少女必須在期限內完成學校老師交代的話劇排演,還有各自爸媽的要求。
  過程中她們不但要運用各種數學、文學及聖經有關的知識解開謎題。還要與幕後黑手鬥智以搶得先機。
  但心急的幕後黑手竟打算威脅蘇菲!  蕾貝卡也因為媽媽可能失業,面臨必需轉學的情況!
  還有瑪格莉特的奶奶對她的過度關心,新成員莉安和蘇菲的青梅竹馬拉斐爾越來越親密…
  究竟四位少女偵探能不能攜手合作,破解謎題與危機?  蘇菲和拉斐爾是否有可能從好朋友變成男女朋友?
  「紅外套少女偵探團」能否一戰成名,就從這一場冒險開始!
  It all began with The Scream. And ended with . . . well, if we told you that, it wouldn’t be a mystery! But in between The Scream and The Very Surprising Ending, three friends find themselves on a scavenger hunt set up for a girl they never met, in search of a legendary ring reputed to grant wishes. Are these sleuths in school uniforms modern-day equivalents of Nancy, Harriet, or Scooby? Not really, they’re just three nice girls who decide to help out a weird lady, and end up hiding under tables, tackling word puzzles and geometry equations, and searching rather moldy storage rooms for “the stuff that dreams are made of” (that’s from an old detective movie). Oh, and there’s A Boy, who complicates things. As boys often do.
  Intrigued? The Red Blazer Girls offers a fun, twisty adventure for those who love mystery, math (c’mon, admit it!), and a modest measure of mayhem.
  Michael Beil, a New York City high school English teacher, makes his literary debut with this fun and brainy mystery.
