When Mark borrows a copy of Great Expectations from the school library, he finds, concealed between two pages, an envelope containing three crisp one-hundred dollar bills. There is also a note mysterious but intriguing, that invites the finder to embark on a quests. If Mark can puzzle out the meaning of a series of enigmatic verse clues meant to lead him on a treasure hunt around his hometown of Pittsburgh, then, like Charles Dicken's Pip, he is promised a fortune. But he must follow certain rules - like working in absolute secrecy - or the deal is off. Rewarded by gifts of money, Mark uses the clues to move from one strange Pittsburgh location to the next - an abandoned steel mill, an old astronomical observatory - when suddenly the rules of the quest change...
"The author writes for young adults, not down to them, and addresses everything from contemporary drug problems to broken homes without climbing on a soapbox."
Karen Stabiner, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 06/16/1996Review:
"The characters are well-developed and the plot is easy to follow. It is a novel that is hard to put down until finished."
Melissa McPherson, Voya, August 1996
