Ever wonder what it would be like to get kidnapped? In The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm by Nancy Farmer, The children of the most powerful men in Zimbabwe get kidnapped. So the parents of the children (General Matsika and their mother) call the detective agency The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm. They are located in the place called Cow Guts, and each has their own special ability. However, one huge problem is the gang called the Masks. They are the ones that are making it hard for the kids to get home.

Unlike other books this takes place in the year 2194, with weird places, very abnormal people, and lots of action. You won't want to put down. I personally liked this book because there is no other book like it. I would highly recommend this book to people who like detective, science fiction, and fantasy books.
