About this title
Cliff's premonitions and dreams about a mysterious fire lead him and his friends into a fatal confrontation with perpetrators of a terrifying evil.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-10-- A story that contains the makings of a good mystery--strange characters, suspense, unexplained happenings--but one that requires readers to take giant leaps of faith to get through the gaps in the plot. The mystery revolves around a hotel fire that Gil thinks is suspicious. He enlists his new girlfriend (in one sentence he's moaning about never having a girlfriend, then suddenly she's hanging on to him. If life could be so easy!); they initiate the help of his best friend, Del, and his girlfriend. They are followed by a mysterious man in a white linen suit who shoots at them (or does he?). There's a gold mask that lots of people wear, but only two are villains--an old man and his daughter (or is it his wife?) who never age (or never die?). In the midst of the drama Gil worries that his parents are strange (although they're not). He has a parrot that talks like a person and he has a mummy in the basement to be fed (big loopholes here). Unfortunately, although the suspense is well-paced, this far-fetched tale doesn't live up to readers' expectations. --Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
