After the skeleton plows them over, Sammy and her friends look to see what he was running "from." That's when they find Frankenstein tied to a chair. Someone's taking "trick or treat" way too far
When Sammy starts to dig into what really happened Halloween night, she's amazed at how many people have something to hide. Of course, Sammy's got a few secrets herself. And more than a few tricks up her sleeve.
The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it's the drama in Sammy's personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father.
"Artfully throwing in clues, red herrings, and well-timed revelations, Van Draanen keeps her heroine on the hop...Sammy is as resourceful and tough as ever, and the breathless pace of this adventure will rivet readers from page one."--Kirkus Reviews
