In this Raven Hill mystery from Australia, Liz gets a group of friends together with the intent of making some money. It isn't long before they're up to their ears in mystery and adventure. Rebecca Macauley's accent is fun for young American listeners. In addition, she does a superb job creating different voices for the many characters, with an especially notable elderly lady who helps the children to get in touch with a "ghost." Between each chapter are jazzy riffs, which help keep the mood upbeat. Overall, the narrator keeps the tone cheery, an approach that works well for a work reminiscent of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. D.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
