The Boxer & the Spy by Robert B. Parker
Jason Green washed up on the beach. The media reported it as a suicide, implying that it was linked with traces of steroids in the teen's system. But Terry, Abby and a few others don't believe Jason took steroids, or that he took his own life. They start digging for information, which leads to threats of suspension from the sketchy principal and threats of a beating from the obviously over-steroided football player Kip. Terry and Abby don't give up, but they do get sneakier. As Terry spends his afternoons learning about boxing, and life, Abby sets up a spy network and coordinates reports from her "agents." Trusting only each other with the whole truth, the teens slowly get closer to the reason Jason died...and who killed him.
A fabulous book loaded with boxing action and spy thrills.
