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.
