Publisher's Summary

When young Gus LeGarde befriends a cranky old hermit in the woods who speaks to an Oneida Indian spirit named Penaki, he wonders if the man is nuts. But when Penni rattles tin cups, draws on dusty mirrors, and flips book pages, pestering them to find evidence to avenge her past and free her from earthly bondage, things change.
What Gus doesn'tunderstand is why his mother hates Tully. His relentless digging reveals a hint of scandal about Tully and Gus' maternal grandfather, Marlowe Wright. Can his natural compassion help him accept the not-so-normal facts about Tully and Marlowe?
On horseback, Gus and his friends ride through woods overlooking Conesus Lake,following Penni's trail to an abandoned house reportedly infected with the deadly Genesee Valley Fever from the 1700s. Unafraid, they enter and make anastounding find that could rewrite history.
Gus summons courage beyond his years in this poignant and powerful telling of the sultry summer of 1965.

Easy Listen

This Aaron Paul Lazar's mystery is well written and is easy to pick and up and put down. Even though this story is part of a several part series, I had no trouble jumping in at this point and I didn't feel like I was missing anything as a listener/reader, which is very rare and commendable. It had a down to earth plot and fun twists and turns that can bring you back to your childhood adventure days.

Narrator, Erik Synnestvedt, does well to capture the youthful nature of this book. His voices are simple yet diverse and keep you engaged throughout the tale.

Overall a good read. I would recommend this to all.

This audiobook was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Any additional comments?

Aaron masters the feelings of all three young characters, Gus, Elsbeth and Sigrid. The book stays in that 11-12 year old perspective and it true that reality throughout. I loved that. This is Aaron Lazar's strength. You fall in love with them and wish you were young again.
