ADVENTURE ON HIGH WHITE ISLAND

The summer of 1991 will be an exciting one for twelve year old HEIDI SMITH. She arrives at her trailer near Lake Nyona nine miles south of Rochester, Indiana unaware of the adventure that awaits her. Anxious to see the lake, she runs to the dock behind her mobile home and overlooking the mysterious White High Island, a huge forest across the lake. She's surprised when she sees a powerful blue light flickering on the island. Is it flickering in a resident's home? Are there any homes on the island?

Rumors say that HANS BACHMANN, a prisoner of war during World War Two and former aide to Germany's Adolph Hitler is living there. She asks her friend CRAIG MARKEY to go to the island with her and her ten year old brother SCOTT. But when he doesn't come to the dock as he promised, she and Scott row to White High alone to investigate. She gets there and begins to climb the steps leading to the top. Suddenly, she trips on one. She looks down and sees a small white book. Who does it belong to? She opens it to the middle and reads that it belongs to Bachmann. But that doesn't prove he's living on the island. Does it?

After discovering the diary, she investigates further. She pushes through the underbrush and comes to a clearing. She steps through it and is surprised. She sees the shape of a roof she thinks is a home but when she gets to the front window, she sees the blue light she saw flickering and realizes it's someone's laboratory. A man is hunched over a long table mixing something. She tries to take a breath but she can't because of the smell.

Surprised that she saw the man she runs to the back and looks into a window. She sees that Craig is lying bound and gagged on the floor. She returns to where Scott is waiting for her. She tells him to go to her friend's cottage and call CHIEF JIM MARKEY, the village police chief and Craig's dad. He returns with the chief. She watches him try to arrest Bachmann. He surprises her, lunges

From the Back Cover:

Twelve-year-old Heidi Smith is looking forward to a summer full of adventure. Her family has parked their mobile home on the banks of Lake Nyona in Indiana and Heidi and her ten-year-old brother Scott can't wait to begin exploring the area-especially the heavily wooded, uninhabited White High Island that stands isolated in the center of the lake.

On night, Heidi sees an eerie blue light coming from the island. Local legend tells the tale of an escaped German prisoner of war, Hans Bachmann, who took refuge on White High Island fifty-five years ago. Some of the folks in the neighborhood believe he lives there still. Could there be a connection between the weird blue light and the fugitive Nazi war criminal?

The lake rumors about the island peak Heidi's curiosity. She asks her friend Craig Mackey to row over to the island with her and Scott to investigate. Instead of coming to the dock, Craig disappears. What happened to him? Heidi's sleuthing game becomes a deadly serious mission.
