From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Bean and Ab always spend their summers together on the Maine island where Bean lives. This year, Bean tells Ab that the boarding house where she is staying with her parents is haunted, and the two friends become immersed in the history of the house and solving a mystery involving missing treasure and stolen paintings. When they discover an intricate pulley system that makes a floor rise, thus revealing a hidden tunnel, the two escape serious harm just as the floor stops inches from crushing them against the ceiling. This well-structured tale never loses momentum. Bean and Ab are likable characters who move through the story, unearthing clues that take them closer to solving a mystery that has existed for more than 100 years. Their youthful enthusiasm, investigative prowess, and endearing friendship make for interesting characterization. The carefully orchestrated chapters and the fast pace will hold children's attention throughout.

Review:

"Impossible-to-put-down Maine mystery. Suspense builds neatly from chapter to chapter, and the ending is richly satisfying." -- Dana Wilde - Bangor Daily News, Sunday, February 12, 2000
