Thomas Small's dad is researching
the history behind Dies Drear Mansion. The Small family lives there while
his dad is doing the work. Their neighbor, the Darrows, are trying to find
the legendary treasure supposedly buried underground in the neighborhood.
The adopted daughter, Pasty Darrow, knows more than she's telling. Plato,
the old man who lives in a cave on the estate, also knows. The mansion
turns out to have secret passages, walls that lift, fireplaces that revolve.
When it's not sure who knows what secret, Professor Small has a plan to
settle the tensions among the neighbors.
In the sequel to Dies Drear,
it has an awesome way of concluding the first part of this outstanding
trilogy. It start right were The House of Dies Drear left off. Macky and
Thomas still are having the same old conflicts. This book will still keep
you guessing from the beginning to the very end. You should go check this
book out of your local library or even buy it at a nearby Borders.
