Sid Fleischman has written over three dozen books for young readers, including the Newbery Award winner The Whipping Boy. Before becoming a writer, he worked as a professional magician, then as a reporter. His other books include By the Great Horn Spoon and The Ghost in the Noonday Sun. Mr. Fleischman lives in Santa Monica, California, not far from the action of this novel.From AudioFile:
Is there a connection between the circumstances surrounding the disappearance and presumed death of Mrs. Kidd and the man in the white suit who is stalking her two children? Kevin and Holly flee Albuquerque for Venice Beach, where they take part in a whirlwind adventure, surrounded by a vibrant group of beach performers and opera singers. Sid Fleischman's signature twists and turns bring unlikely characters into the action. This full-cast production heightens the freshness and urgency of the children's quest to carve out a life and to resolve the mystery. Each cast member adds a distinctive voice and personal interpretation--the jealous co-worker, the jaunty landlady, and the opera organizer--as they aid the intrepid duo.
