Grade 5-7 In this new "Ghost Squad" book, the living and dead sleuths investigate a ritzy summer camp and discover that the owner is a Nazi war criminal. The plot moves smoothly and suspensefully, depending on mistaken identities for mystery and ghostly powers for solution. The one-dimensional characters, however, trivialize Nazi hunting and leave readers wondering why none of the Ghoul's 150,000 victims help haunt the criminal. The Ghost Squad plays fairer with readers than the Hardy Boys do by providing clues and not relying on coincidence. Nevertheless, no one in the book seems real, the way Doris Fein (Holiday), for example, does. An adequate mystery for collections where this or other mystery series are in high demand.
