Young Adult • 5.25 hrs • Unabridged • © 1989

Avi's mystery offers a Holmes-ian precursor, Auguste Dupin, and a young boy. Dupin is actually his creator, Edgar Allan Poe, and the tale has enough complexity to match Doyle and Poe's stories. The setting is early nineteenth-century Providence, Rhode Island. George Guidall's style is relaxed and unfolds the story plainly to the listener without distractions. Guidall has a brilliant knack for conveying sinister atmosphere and unknown dangers. This adds immeasurably to the success of his narration, which will keep young mystery fans entranced.
