About the Author:

Suzi Wizowaty Vermont.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6–When Alma, an 11-year-old foster child, finds herself alone and without a home in a small French city, she decides that the best possible place to live would be in the ancient cathedral at the center of the town. While there, she begins to uncover a sick secret kept within the walls of this holy site. The children of the town have been disappearing, and the cathedral's mysterious tour guide may nurse evil intentions that no one suspects. As Alma investigates, she befriends a bitter old street cleaner and some fellow foster children in a race to save innocent lives. Wizowaty occasionally writes in lovely prose, as in passages such as, She had a sudden vision of herself as the hands of an old-fashioned clock that had somehow got detached from the face where they belonged and were now walking around free but dazed. Unfortunately, the book is lamentably slow to reveal the evil of the title. Other problems come in terms of character and motivation. While the villain's obsessions are clear, his motives for kidnapping children (as well as disposing of them) are foggy at best, and readers are likely to be disappointed in the story's pace and sudden conclusion. Though a wonderful way to introduce youngsters to the enchantment and lure of old European cathedrals, Wizowaty's book is beautifully written but unmoored.–Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library
