The Castle on Deadman’s Island – Curtis Parkinson

thecastleondeadmansisland

A death, a curse, a ghost, nasty people . . .
Intrigue. An eccentric millionaire. A woman’s disappearance. A child’s skeleton. A ghost. A towering castle. A secret tunnel.

When the owner of the castle on Deadman’s Island dies, his bizarre will leaves it to three of his friends who hate each other.

Neil, Graham, and Crescent become involved when Graham’s Aunt Henrietta, who is bequeathed one-third ownership of the castle, mysteriously disappears. Has she gone on a trip, as some insist, or is there more to the story? Graham, with a sense of foreboding and the help of his friends, is determined to find out before it’s too late.

This book is a historical mystery so there’s some fun slang thrown around, but it really is a good mystery.  There are dead bodies to be found, evil villains lurking around dark corners, and even a little romance in the air.  A fun, quick read.– Jessica, Teen Librarian
