In this fifth Sammy Keyes mystery, the normally unflappable heroine encounters a corpse, an arsonist, and an irate policeman -- and her first real experiences with adolescent angst. On a quiet weekend in the country, Sammy and her friends meet Lucinda Huntley and her 200-pound pig, and become involved in a centuries old family feud involving Lucinda's great grandma Moustache Mary. When Mary's pioneer cabin burns to the ground, it's up to Sammy to dig up the cause as the past collides with the present in this highly combustible mystery!

Professional reviews

"Tara Sands brings a lively voice and brisk pace to the story of a determined 13-year- old detective, her three girlfriends, and the slew of quirky characters who populate this mystery. In this entry into the series, Sammy tries to retrieve her stolen skateboard; befriends an interesting old woman with a pet pig; reads the personal diary of a pioneer woman whose ghost may still be around; receives surprising attention from a boy; and gets herself and her friends into serious danger while trying to catch an arsonist. All these plots are satisfyingly woven together. Van Draanen has written a solid mystery with suspense, humor, and heart; Tara Sands captures all three in an enjoyable dramatization. E.S.
