It’s summer and the three Barker brothers — Simon, Henry, and Jack — just moved from Illinois to Arizona. Their parents have warned them repeatedly not to explore Superstition Mountain, which is near their home. But when their cat Josie goes missing, they see no other choice. There’s something unusually creepy about the mountain and after the boys find three human skulls, they grow determined to uncover the mystery. Have people really gone missing over the years, and could there be someone or some thing lurking in the woods? The Barker boys are dead-set on cracking the case even if it means putting themselves in harm’s way.

Here’s the first book in an action-packed mystery series by a New York Times bestselling author.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In this novel for children ages 8-12 she [Elise Broach] purposely leaves storylines dangling, the better perhaps to lure us back for sequels that will (we hope!) disclose what has gone missing on Superstition Mountain.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Broach follows her acclaimed Masterpiece with an exciting adventure set in a real-life Arizona mountain range that boasts numerous legends about colorful historical figures, unsolved murders, strange disappearances, and rumors of a hidden gold mine…Classic horror and thriller elements combine with modern touches…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

  • “Children will be pleased by the mountain climbing and clue-finding aspects.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A spine-tingling adventure unfolds over the course of swift-moving short chapters.”

    Shelf Awareness

  • A 2011 Publishers Weekly Best Book: Children's Fiction

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia Gay | 2/19/2014

    " Great mystery...looking forward to the next book. Enjoyed the brothers and Delilah...the interaction of all of them was so realistic. I enjoyed Henry's interest in vocabulary. Is the librarian a good lady...or not?! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 The Styling Librarian | 2/17/2014

    " Interesting mystery with great setting but I wasn't as thrilled with the ending or pacing as I expected to be. "

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

    " Elise Broach is one of my favorite authors and this book lived up to expectations. The three young Barker boys have just moved to Superstition, AZ with their parents. When their cat runs away they find, 1. a girl who claims the cat is hers, 2. a mysterious history in the nearby mountain. Defying their parents they climb the mountain and uncover a few answers and even more questions. This is a great first in what is sure to be an exciting history/mystery series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/27/2014

    " Good middle grade boy book, full of adventure, murder(?), a missing treasure and more. The only problem I had is that there is no real ending and no resolution. It just kind of stops, yet not in enough of a clifhanger way for readers to be enticed to pick up what is sure to be a sequel. "

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

    " This was an enjoyable mystery, but nowhere near as fun as Masterpiece. I do like how the author set up the opportunity for a trilogy without leaving too many loose ends open. The basic mystery is solved and the reader isn't left on a cliffhanger. I would willingly read the next in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hoover Public Library Kids and Teens | 12/18/2013

    " First in a promising series. I loved how the mystery was something real kids might stumble across. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patricia | 11/21/2013

    " I had really been looking forward to this book and I just couldn't get in to it, despite two very lengthy tries. Sorry about this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/31/2013

    " Good juv read, enough believable action to interest young readers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Jewett | 4/23/2013

    " So unsatisfying. I really wondered if the copy I read was missing a couple of chapters at the end, since the story went completely unresolved. What is up with that? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 11/14/2012

    " This wasn't a bad little story. The ending was entirely unsatisfactory, even for the start of a series. Still, it was a nice little read. I think I found it in one of Amazon's lists of books to check out. I got it to see if it would be a good one for my Little. It's totally fine for kids. "

    " I enjoyed this quick read, would be great for a reluctant reader "

    " AWWWWWESSSSSSOOMMMMMMMMME CANT WAIT FOR BOOK 2 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jared | 3/18/2012

    " good, clean, middle grade book. The only drawback is that the kids fulfill their quest by lying to their parents. But I think most kid books do that, (except Aquatia) they have to get in danger somehow. Recommended for kids "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorelie | 1/6/2012

    " Ended a bit abruptly. Not expecting that end! Maybe book two will help? "

    " Three brothers stumble across three skulls on Superstition Mountain and must decide what to do about their find. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 12/12/2011

    " Grades 4-6 make sure they are ok with skulls but no descriptive death scenes "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hayley | 7/3/2011

    " We listened to this on a long car journey and it was gripped us all. However, the ending was less than satisfactory as it's the start of a series and nothing was resolved so we all felt a little let down. Good characters but I wish it hadn't been the girl that fell and caused all the problems. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 5/15/2011

    " A classic kid mystery- two families with kids are new in Superstition, Arizona at the foot of the mysterious Superstition Mountain. The kids find some skulls on the mountain and search to find out what is really going on up in the rocky canyons that they are constantly warned away form. "
