Other Editions of This Title:
Abbey and her best friend, Bee, set out to solve another mystery with its roots deep in Southern history in this follow-up to J. E. Thompson's The Girl from Felony Bay. For the first time in a long time, things are looking up for Abbey Force. She lives on Reward Plantation with Bee, and her father has just recovered from his coma. But then their neighbor's dog, Yemassee, is kidnapped, and they are the only witnesses. They decide it's their job to find the men who took him.
This dognapping, though, will lead Abbey and Bee into something much deeper. And before they're through, the girls will once again have to dig through the hidden history of their South Carolina home in order to set things right.
About the Author

Praise For Disappearance at Hangman's Bluff (Felony Bay Mysteries #2)…
— Kirkus Reviews
“Not your average children’s mystery, this one has depth. Add to that some likable characters, steady plot pacing, and just some good writing, and you’ve got a unique story that questions the ethics of the past and present while offering a good adventure to boot.”
— School Library Journal
“Thompson’s plotting . . . remains suspenseful as Abbey and Bee ride their ponies around an island fraught with family history and try to right wrongs of the past and present.”
