This edition of Tom Sawyer, Detective includes a Foreword, Biographical Note, and Afterword from the Publisher.
Well, it seems like a grand vacation idea when Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are invited to boat down river and visit Tom's Uncle Silas, but every inch of the trip draws the boys deeper into a tangled web of dark deeds. Stolen diamonds; a mysterious stranger; vengeful manhunters; a long lot twin; a vanished farm-hand...how does it all add it?
The question explodes when Tom Sawyer discovers a dead man in a shallow grave, and Uncle Silas confesses to a murder he didn't commit! Now Tom Sawyer must find and unmask the real killer--or Silas will be hanged and his family destroyed.
