Even though Henry Barker and his two brothers learned firsthand that the urban legend about danger on nearby Superstition Mountain wasn't just a myth, this doesn't stop them from planning their return. Along with their friend Delilah, the Barker brothers soon find themselves entangled in more danger and mystery as they uncover a real treasure, but the discovery comes at a very big price-they barely survive an avalanche. The question remains - is someone after them, or is the mountain seeking revenge?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for "Missing on Superstition Mountain"

An Amazon.com Best Book of the Month in June 2011

"An exciting adventure . . . Caparo's skillful grayscale illustrations add a spooky element: three skulls mark each new chapter, and images like a black cat sitting on a crooked gravestone inspire chills. Classic horror and thriller elements combine with modern touches in Broach's page-turner, a very promising start to this series." --"Publishers Weekly", starred review

"With the unusual setting, the lure of mystery and adventure, and a certain innocence reminiscent of the Boxcar Children series, this story should find a ready audience." --"Booklist"

"Broach reserves plenty of suspicious characters, spooky landscapes and loose ends for the slated sequels, which both boys and girls will savor." --"Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for "Shakespeare's Secret"

North Dakota Flicker Tale Children's Award Master List

"[More] evidence-driven than Blue Balliett's "Chasing Vermeer", this agreeable history-mystery may have even more appeal to budding sleuths." --"Kirkus Reviews", starred review
