Ross's slightly roughened voice brings to mind pipe tobacco and firelight, emphasizing the mood, setting, and abundant descriptions in this story without trying to vary the character's voices. Twelve-year-old Harper and the older Moon are unlikely friends but have shared many special moments. Harper's close relationship with the reclusive storekeeper, Olinger, spurs him to hike to Olinger's house when the elder man disappears. When he finds Olinger dead, the only thing more shocking than finding Moon there as well is hearing that Moon is suspected of the murder. Harper's devotion to his friend will be tested in a story that will captivate older children. E.J.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
