Publication date: May 2012
Digital Book format: PDF (Adobe DRM)
After being sent to the country by their parents, five industrious kids seek out a serial arsonist in C.S. Norman’s young adult novel. As their elders fumble around, the kids find clues and begin to narrow down suspects from the village.
After Tori Logan and her sister, Mackenzie, witness a suspicious fire across the street from their house, their neighborhood is transformed into a crime scene. Worried about their daughters' safety, their parents ship the girls off to their grandparents' cottage in a charming village where they hope they will be out of harm's way for the remainder of the summer. But little do they know that Tori and Mackenzie are about to once again be immersed into the midst of a dangerous investigation.
The sisters are thrilled when they are joined by their cousins, Jack, Philip, and Rip. But it is not long before the quintet ironically discovers another fire scene-this time in uptown Lockview. After beginning their own investigation to determine who is responsible for setting the fire, the Logan kids soon realize they have few clues, but an entire guilty-until-proven-innocent cast of townspeople. From the scary man who hangs out at the town diner to the disgusting video store owner to the librarian, butcher, mayor, pastor, and even their grandpa, the cousins have no shortage of suspects.
In this suspenseful tale, five kids on a search for a crazy arsonist with a little help from their elders quickly discover that things-and people-are not always what they seem.
