In Echo Falls you never know what's coming next, and everyone has a secret.

Things are amiss at 99 Maple Lane: Ingrid's dad's job is in jeopardy, but he won't explain why. Ingrid's brother, Ty, is getting buff, really buff, but when Ty starts getting moody, Ingrid wonders if there's more to his physical fitness than lifting weights. Meanwhile, Ingrid's beloved soccer coach is replaced by an icy newcomer named Julia LeCaine, who seems a little too savvy to be in it for the postgame pizza.

True to her hero, Sherlock Holmes, Ingrid begins fishing around to find out who's really pulling the strings in Echo Falls. But one morning, while en route to the dreaded MathFest, Ingrid is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a car. Even if she escapes, will anyone believe her story?

In this sequel to Down the Rabbit Hole, a clever young girl learns that mysterious forces are at work in her town, and exposing them could put her life in jeopardy.

    " Another good YA mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corey | 2/17/2014

    " Maybe not as good as the first, but still a fun, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Lewis | 2/9/2014

    " Once again, Ingrid solves the mystery plaguing little town of Echo Falls. It's a great way to introduce kids to the genre of mystery; I just wish the book had no cursing. The read would have been more enjoyable for me without them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 2/2/2014

    " I really enjoy this series, I'm looking forward to getting to read book 3. "

    " Good series for middle graders! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 2/1/2014

    " The sequel to Down the Rabbit Hole picks up with Ingrid trying to figure out what's going on with her brother and her father, in addition to competing in MathFest (a punishment from her math teacher), playing soccer, and acting as Dorothy in a local production of a scene from the Wizard of Oz. By the end of the book, she has gotten to the bottom of some mysteries but other situations are left unresolved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Esther | 1/27/2014

    " This book is the second book to Down the Rabbit Hole and I think it is a great book too. However, I liked the first book more. In this book, Ingrid is trying to fidn out who kidnapped her and why. She tells the police officer most of the things except for one. It has something to do with her brother. She doesn't want to tell the officer that because she is afraid that her brother might get kicked out of his football team. Similar to the first book, Ingrid solves the mystery by herself so with some help from the officer, so she does not need to get her brother involved in the case. Throughout the case, Ingrid suspected a lot of innocent people, until finally, she found all the clues needed at one place. That was when she finds out who was the real kidnapper. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mayday Maddie | 1/18/2014

    " Almost as good as the first... of all the Echo Falls Mysteries, I think that Down the Rabbit Hole was mr favorite... but yeah. This ends my very deep insight. =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 1/11/2014

    " I didn't like this one as much as the first one. The plot was too transparent. You knew who done it in the first 50 pages. I'll read the next one because I like the main character, but this one was a bust for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Ellen | 1/7/2014

    " I enjoy the Echo Falls characters. In this novel we learn more about the Levin-Hill family and it isn't always nice. It is a well written book but I could see the plot coming early in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Millett | 1/5/2014

    " Overall a good book. It made our trip from LA to San Jose much quicker. Mystery gradually builds in such a way that I had to remind myself to expect a mystery. Like the first book in the series, there was more crude language than I would have liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oli | 1/2/2014

    " I like this book. I just don't like it how they say Ingrid is only thirteen, I always imagined her to be in high school and about 15. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clay | 12/30/2013

    " AWESOMEEEEEEEEE "

    " A excellent second novel to the exciting mystery series!!!! :) <3! An excellent scandal as the exciting plot lays out this awesome, on-your-toes book!!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 12/5/2013

    " I loved Down the Rabbit Hole but in this book Ingrid got on my nerves so I think it was the reader for the audio version but I can't be sure that it isn't in fact the actual Ingrid who grated on me so thus ... two stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 11/17/2013

    " It was about 4 stars not as good as the first book but all the characters play there parts well I would recommend this to people who like a good mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aphan17 | 8/16/2013

    " I think this book is very interesting because it tells about Ingrid and her family-members having problems. And then Ingrid is invite to one of her friends house that she hasn't talked to for a very long time and then Ingrid is suddenly kidnapped. If you want to read more please read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 7/1/2013

    " I was disappointed at the language in this book, especially for a juvenile mystery, especially the use of the Lord's name in vain. I enjoyed the first book much better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan | 5/19/2013

    " I thought it was AMAZING!!!!! i honestly couldn't put it down! after breakfast i sat in the chair and finished the entire book right there and then! It was an amazing book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elyse S. | 1/16/2013

    " I thought Down the Rabbit Hole and Into the Dark were both better than this, but I still thought it was really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 HELINA | 1/9/2013

    " This was a great mystery I reconment it to every one. It has a lot of curse words but they are used correctly!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather McKeon | 10/5/2012

    " Another fun on in the Echo Falls Mystery series.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 7/3/2012

    " it was better than the 1st "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 10/1/2011

    " I love this series! Ingrid's favorite character is Sherlock Holmes. She loves to "notice things." She gets involved and solves the crime. The first book in the series is "Down the Rabbit Hole" which won an Edgar Award for best novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 9/11/2011

    " Not quite as riveting as the first Echo Falls Mystery, but still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 7/19/2011

    " Fun 2nd book in YoungAdult series. MiddleSchool girl as protagonist - soccer player, possible/potential math whiz, SherlockHolmes fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 7/11/2011

    " Another win in the Echo Falls series. I did think that the story went on a bit before the "mystery" was revealed. I love that Ingrid is such a smart little girl. She's a hoot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 6/13/2011

    " Very good book about real life situations, I liked Ingrid adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 5/19/2011

    " Not being around teens on a daily basis I often forget the struggles they face and how insulated their world is. I picked up this book and now have the other two because of the underlying theatre theme.

    But, can't siblings just be really mean to each other? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/17/2011

    " I'm really liking it...the Sherlock Holmes references are fun, though it's a bit predictable sometimes. The swearing and drug content make it too mature for an elementary school library, so I'm labeling it YA even though that's where I got it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geneva | 3/31/2011

    " This book would appeal most to the younger teens (middle-schoolers). However, it is engaging and fast-paced in spite of the simple writing style. Another great installment in the Echo Falls Mystery series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jocelyn | 3/16/2011

    " Not as good as the first one, but I really enjoyed it still!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 peanutfreeisme | 2/21/2011

    " This sequel was just as good as the first book in this series, DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE. I can't wait to read the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabella | 2/15/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas | 11/26/2010

    " This was actually a fun book. I started it when I ran out of books while visiting the grandkids in Texas and Sherryl had this. Full of suspense and good detecting - of course it is about a 13 year old girl and has some of that early teenage angst. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 10/29/2010
