Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twelve-year-old Colophon Letterford has a serious mystery on her hands. Will she discover the link between her familys literary legacy and Shakespeares tomb before its 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!

Synopsis:

The Da Vinci Code meets Nancy Drew in this galloping middle-grade mystery about twelve-year old Colophon Letterford and the ancient treasure left to her literary publishing family.

About the Author

As a lawyer, Deron Hicks investigates mysteries for a living, so it's only natural that he wrote about one of literature' s most puzzling people. He lives in Warm Springs, Georgia with his wife children.

Mark Edward Geyer is best known as the illustrator of two Stephen King novels: Rose Madder and The Green Mile. Mark has worked in a variety of illustration genres, including corporate advertising, editorial, and architectural. He comes from a long line of artists.
