The setting and the characters were set up well and I was expecting great things from this book, but sadly I felt it fell short. I felt the author could have done much more with his creations (in terms of setting and action). I wouldn't have read this book if I had known it was such a sorry excuse for a mystery and I would rather read Nancy Drew any day. I felt the only interesting part was in the tunnel, but even then there wasn't much action. And the conclusion? Worst conclusion for a mystery ...more

The castle on Deadman's Island is supposedly cursed; at least it seems that way, since mysterious things have happened to all its previous owners. When Graham's aunt inherits it along with two others, then suddenly disappears, could it be the curse or something more human in design? Graham, Neil, and Crescent are determined to find out.

Curtis Parkinson grew up in Kingston, Ontario. He graduated from Queen's University in chemical engineering and worked in South America and in Canada for many years. Then he moved to the Caribbean to live on a sailboat and to write, a lifelong dream. As Curtis says, "Many rejections later, the cat fell off the boat one night, and the cat's story became my first book, Tom Foolery."
