About the Book

Twelve-year-old Colophon Letterford has a serious mystery on her hands. Will she discover the link between her family’s literary legacy and Shakespeare’s tomb before it’s too late? Antique paintings, secret passages, locked mausoleums, a four-hundred-year-old treasure, and a cast of quirky (and some ignoble) characters all add up to a fun original adventure. Readers will revel in a whirlwind journey through literary time and space in real-world locales from Mont St. Michel to Stratford-Upon-Avon to Central Park!

Critical Praise

"Superbly written, plenty of action, a bright and inquisitive 12-year-old girl protagonist, and lots of literary flair, this book can be recommended to pretty much any kid in the 8-13 range." — Decatur Metro

"The combination of humor and suspense works well to keep readers turning the pages of this modern-day mystery." — Kirkus Reviews

"Hicks establishes an aura of old-fashioned mystery in his entertaining debut."  — Publishers Weekly

"A fine traditional mystery with a modern sensibility."  — Booklist
