Best-selling author Betty Ren Wright earned eight state awards for this middle-grade mystery about a murder kept secret in a dollhouse. Amy is terrified. She hears scratching and scurrying noises coming from the dollhouse, and the dolls she was playing with are not where she left them. Dolls can't move by themselves, she tells herself. But every night when Amy goes into the attic to check on the dollhouse, it is filled with an eerie light and the dolls have moved again! Are the dolls trying to tell her something? Are their movements connected to grisly murders of her own great-grandparents?

Betty Ren Wright is the best-selling author of many books for children, inclduing "The Dollhouse Murders" and "Christina's Ghost", both of which received the Texas Bluebonnet Award. She live in Racine, Wisconsin.From AudioFile:
What if there were a grisly double murder in your family's past? What if that unsolved murder were a dark family secret uncovered by furtive sleuthing? Carol Jordan Stewart offers a fast-paced narration of 12-year-old Amy's story as she struggles with a concealed past and a terrifying present. Stewart's unimpassioned delivery of Amy's Aunt Claire is perfectly suited to the emotionally controlled woman who has hidden the pain of her parents' murders for more than thirty years. And Stewart's superb reading of Amy's developmentally delayed sister, Luanne, employs the cadences and innocence befitting such a character. Pacing is used effectively during scenes of high tension while bars of ominous music introduce each tape and set the mood for a mystery kids will thrill to. T.B. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
