Echo Falls Mystery Series
Abrahams has started a series for younger readers called the Echo Falls Mysteries. There are currently three books in the series: Down the Rabbit Hole, Behind the Curtain, and Into the Dark. They are all based around teen super sleuth Ingrid Levin-Hill.
Chet and Bernie Mystery Series
Writing as Spencer Quinn, Abrahams is the author of the Chet and Bernie Mysteries. These stories are told from the point of view of Chet, Bernie Little's canine partner in the Little Detective Agency.
It was not initially known that Abrahams was Quinn. It took some work by journalists to determine who "Quinn" really is.
