When sixth grader Nina Tanleven starts working at an antiques shop, she never expects to stumble onto a mystery -- or into danger. But that's exactly what happens when she and her best friend, Chris, go to pick up an antique wardrobe at old Miss Watson's. From the moment the girls set foot in the run-down mansion, they sense that it's haunted -- even before they discover the tower room with its big brass bed and grieving little girl ghost!

But the tower romm isn't the only place holding secrets. In the parlor there's a gruesome painting, which seems to have a terrible hold over Nina. Could there be a connection between it and the ghostly child crying upstairs? As Nina and Chris begin investigating, a second ghost puts in an eerie appearance. The girls realize this could be the biggest ghost-busting adventure of their lives -- if they survive!

About the Author:

Bruce Coville is the author of over 80 books for young readers. He lives in Syracuse, NY.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- The ghost of a little girl waiting for her father, the father's ghost looking for his daughter, a lost painting, and a house full of antiques add up to a mystery. Ghost specialists Nina Tanleven and Chris Gurley really hadn't planned on getting involved in any more hauntings, but they can't say no when the father and daughter appeal to them for help. The two girls are resourceful and courageous while trying to unravel the secrets. Antagonists are well developed, and readers will enjoy trying to figure out the real villain's identity. Descriptive details add to the suspense. Especially powerful are the paintings that seem to come to life with an unnatural force. This is a page turner that will keep mystery buffs reading to the frightening climax and satisfactory conclusion. --Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
