From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. When mystery writer William LeGrand disappears without a trace, his literary agent approaches J. P. McGurk and his detective gang to locate the missing author and his hidden cache of manuscripts. Because the sleuths find all sorts of clues relating to Edgar Allan Poe's poems and stories, which were planted by LeGrand himself, they deduce that his disappearance has been staged. Later, a cut telephone line and a full but moldy refrigerator convince them he has been kidnapped. Hildick judiciously sprinkles clues and illustrative diagrams throughout the story, allowing young readers to match wits with these master crime writers. Quirky characters (including Lady Thumb from an earlier mystery) and clever dialogue add to the appeal, making this a good choice for McGurk fans and detective story enthusiasts. Kay Weisman
