Angela Kiverstein, The Jewish Chronicle 

Outside Chance by Anthony Kessel is the second part of the Don’t Doubt the Rainbow series centred on teenage super-sleuth Edie Marble. This time, she has a cluster of cases to solve — the reappearance of one client’s long-lost classmate as a possible stalker; the disappearance of several dogs, and the worrying behaviour of a friend’s father, with possible links to terrorism. As if those challenges were not enough, Edie also has to cope with batmitzvah lessons. Kessel deftly lays a network of plot strands, then lights the fuse for an explosive finale. Age 11+, would appeal to fans of Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider series.
