Through a Dark Tunnel Cover

Brad and Molly, self-appointed fifth-grade private investigators, are on their second case. This one is a double-dip. Friend Penny's cat Midnight is missing, and Molly is sure that she is in the creepy old Donahue house, the scene of a murder years ago and now said to be haunted. Molly believes the old, still-sorrowing widower Donohue when he insists that his wife was murdered.

Searching for the cat brings the children into scary confrontations with ghostly old Mr. Morgan, head of the Limestone Development Corporation, who is still feuding with old Donahue and trying to buy the house and the land around it. Events come to a startling resolution in a secret tunnel beneath the house that holds an old canteen, a mysterious skeleton, and the answer to Midnight's disappearance.

Readers will find this mystery engaging. The story explores interpersonal relationships and the truth behind assumptions. Even PI Molly discovers that her behavior as a big sister needs modifying.

Lawrence and Suella Walsh are also the authors of Running Scared, the first book about Molly and Brad's investigative adventures, and Suella Walsh is the author of The Case of Erica’s Weird Behavior, both published by Royal Fireworks Press.
