Okay, what a wacky book. I like wacky! But to me, this was random wackiness at the expense of the reader. Two cousins, Howie and Danny, meet as adults. There was an incident in their youth where Howie was abandoned in an old mine or something or other. He was found days later…physically fine, but mentally effected. Now Howie has bought a castle in Germany and has asked Danny to help him and his team restore the castle to its former glory. Danny, an email/internet junkie, hates the idea of isolation. He brings along a satellite linkup, which as you can well guess, is compromised. Danny is left isolated. Lots of strange things happen then, involving the old woman tenant of the castle who refuses to leave, a murky fountain and um, other things. Blah, blah blah. Not worth the read. Save your time for better wackiness. Book #43 of my 2006 Book List, finished reading it on 9-11-06.
