"Listeners and and tween sleuths will be glued to this spectacular production. Jessica Almasy doesn't just narrate--she lives and breathes each moment, starting with Emily's resigned acceptance of her parents' nomadic lifestyle and her barely concealed excitement at moving to San Francisco, the home of Garrison Griswold, creator of her favorite online book-scavenging game. When Griswold is attacked and Emily finds a rare and mysterious book by Edgar Allan Poe, she and her friend, James, dive into a world filled with ciphers, brainteasers, and literary clues while sinister forces relentlessly pursue them. Almasy tempers the intense atmosphere with the constant squabbling of the two inept book thieves, Clyde and Barry, who can't agree on anything. The story includes historical notes.
