Ariana | 53 comments This woman typically solves mysteries, and so this novel is no new thing for her. A dead body is found in a pond near an abandoned mansion. This private investigator catches a girl near this pond and then figures out that this girl is helping this young Arab who is running from the government and hiding in this house. I think this boy's name is Benny. There's a lot of characters, so many that I had a hard time keeping them straight. I believe that this was a conflict between two powerful companies. (Possibly publishing companies). I rented the audio-tape version of this book from a Cracker Barrel last summer.

Ariana | 53 comments At one point the Arab boy hides in an oven or a bathroom or something while cops search the place. I believe that the boy dies later on.

Cracker Barrel rents audiobooks?

Ariana | 53 comments Kind of. It's a weird semi-purchase with return option. (They're all used, but you get them for a little cheaper, and you can return them for about 75% of the purchase price.)
