i almost didn't count this one toward my goal total, because i have the sneaking suspicion that i've read it before. however, enough of it was new that i decided to call it good.

admittedly not my favorite bellairs story. i hold to my opinion that mr. strickland isn't as good an author, and it shows in this one. everything is tied up neatly, yes, but i think that makes the story suffer a little. also, there are some moments where there is unnecessary explanation ("they had no idea they were being lured into a trap!"), but those were few and far between. i believe this follows the timeline of the vengeance of the witch-finder, which i found pretty superior to this one.

still, a good solid read. i enjoyed it and will be trolling the library for more bellairs books i may have missed.
