Grade 4-7-In this 12th book in the series, Jack and Ashley Landon are once again in a life-or-death situation. Thirteen-year-old Nicky Milano has joined the Landons on their trip to Denali National Park in Alaska. What the siblings don't know is that he is in the Witness Protection Program and has a "hit" out on him, to prevent him from telling secrets he learned from his mobster father. Together the three young people must deal with an assassin on a dogsled, an avalanche, and carbon-monoxide poisoning. A must-have for fans of the series (originally called the "National Parks Mystery" series), the book also stands alone as a suspenseful survival story.
