Even a trip to Scotland hasn’t done the trick. Lucas is driving Kari crazy with her nonstop talk about her so-called boyfriend. If Edinburgh’s famous arts festival can’t distract Lucas, what will? The answer turns out to be Seneca Crane.

Seneca is the reason they’re in Scotland in the first place. Kari’s mother is interviewing the fifteen-year-old piano prodigy for a magazine story. At first, the two best friends are sure the beautiful and talented Seneca will be too famous to relate to. But when they meet her and her overly protective parents and tutor, Kari and Lucas decide she needs to be rescued from her restricted life. What they don’t realize is that they’ll soon be rescuing Seneca from a situation even more serious—because after her standing ovation at a concert, Seneca disappears!

Armed with a potentially life-threatening clue and suspicious of those close to Seneca, they head for the Highlands to find her.  But will they be in time to save Seneca from danger?

Listener Opinions

    " I really enjoyed this mystery series for middle schoolers. It's nice to see a book for girls that doesn't just focus on boys, dating, and other superficial things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/18/2014

    " I picked this up because it's partly set on the Isle of Skye, which is one of my favorite places, and because it's a mystery, a favorite genre. I actually tried to read the first book in this series, Mystery of the Third Lucretia, but just couldn't get into it for some reason. Reading this one, I think it might be that it just feels a little off in the characterization--as if the author is trying to think like a teenager but make the book appropriate for younger kids and also get a few messages in there, and it doesn't quite come together. There's nothing wrong with the plot and the settings are done really well, but I guess I just didn't buy the characters. One thing that particularly threw me was the main character reflecting on how teenagers behave while making new friends. Sounded like a 40-something reflecting on how teenagers make new friends. "

    " Lucas & Kari's 2nd adventure/mystery as they befriend a world reknown pianist their age, name Seneca. When she is kidnapped after a performance at a Scottish Festival, the duo figures out the clues to rescue her. Ok "

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

    " (Quarter 4- Mystery) This book is a mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. The mystery is so well written that it makes some people even gasp at what will come next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olivia | 5/26/2012

    " This book kept me on the edge of my seat for pretty much the whole story. I think it is the perfect type of mystery. Some funny parts, some stern parts, even some argue-ments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/21/2011

    " Fun. These two amateur sleuths occasionally made me think of Gilda Joyce, but they were way more mature. The plot twists are predictable, but the characters and setting are interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 11/23/2011

    " Rare in that it appeals to a young teen audience 11-14 yrs crowd but without the sex, violence, and angst usually found in teen novels. Just PURE PLAIN FUN!!!! I've recommended this to many girls this age and they ALL love it! I love it too. 2nd in series by St. Paul author. "
