A rock 'n' roll band to die for....
When fourteen year old Callie McCallan scores a backstage pass to interview the lead singer of the famous band Brass Rat, she's thrilled. Peter Gringras is so cool. When he plays his flute, it's as if he has some kind of hypnotic power. But there is something strange about him, something Callie can't quite put her finger on. Then, on Halloween night, Callie's little brother Nicky disappears, along with all the other children in town. It's crazy, but Callie thinks she knows where the children have gone--and who took them. To prove it, and to rescue Nicky and the other children, Callie must journey to a mythical world filled with fantastical creatures. A world from which there may be no return....

Pay the Piper
At last Gringas turned, grinned, and winked at Callie.
"Now, do you have any questions for me, young lady?"
"Um..." she said. It was not a good beginning
"Did you ever get enough money for your wife?" Nick asked suddenly.
Callie flushed. Not because it was a stupid question. In fact it was on her own mental list. But to ask it so baldly. And in that way. And the implication that--since Nick was her little brother--she wanted to know the answer especially was too much.
"Nicky," she said, her voice low, "shut up or go away. Or both."
Gringas looked at her a moment, and it was as if only the two of them existed in all the world. His voice was soft, musical, low. "Be careful what you wish, my lady, for it might come true. And then you will have many years to rue it."
