In this fifth Sammy Keyes mystery, the normally unflappable heroine encounters a corpse, an arsonist, and an irate policeman - and her first real experiences with adolescent angst.

On a quiet weekend in the country, Sammy and her friends meet Lucinda Huntley and her 200-pound pig, and become involved in a centuries old family feud involving Lucinda's great grandma Moustache Mary. When Mary's pioneer cabin burns to the ground, it's up to Sammy to dig up the cause as the past collides with the present in this highly combustible mystery!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele Wen | 1/27/2014

    " sammy keyes is an amazing series. i am massively in love with it. this certain book of the story is of how two didnt families didnt get along but one kid from each side fell in love. it's sort of like romeo and juliet but with a pioneer twist. sammy and her friends were staying at a friend's place and end up going into crazy adventures like running into a guy who may have stolen her skateboard and unraveling a mystery that has been misinterpreted. this book and this series is a must read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal Jimenez | 1/24/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean W. | 1/11/2014

    " Dumb, un-thrilling fifth entry in children's mystery series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonia | 1/7/2014

    " It was a little weird.... but i liked it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaelyn Grant | 1/2/2014

    " Loved the haunted story of the past included in the mystery of the current life. Also the Sammy faces a drinking party. The author captured the feel of teen partying and the poor choices some chose to make, and some chose to avoid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abigayle | 12/29/2013

    " A little boring in the begining, but overall... really great!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 10/29/2013

    " Yeah, so I totally figured this mystery out early on in the book. Mostly because I (apparently) recognized the basic ingredients for meth before I was even thirteen. Go figure. (And sorry for the spoiler if you haven't read it already.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 5/7/2013

    " I thought this book was good as it wasnt about a girl who was into boys and make-up, it was about a girl who goes on adventures with Moustache Mary. The plot was good and I enjoyed it gr8ly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 4/12/2013

    " An okay mystery. Definitely more of a teen book than a 5th grade book because of some mature issues addressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee Anne | 12/13/2012

    " OK, so you can't be overly critical about the details in these stories. Hey, just read and enjoy! "

    " I've only read two books in the Sammy Keyes series, Hotel Thief and this one, but I'd like to read the rest. Most books say on the back of them that it was a real page-turner, but these books have really only been page-turners for me in my whole life. I literally couldn't put it down! "

    To date, I think this is my favorite of the series because the side characters were so great. Lucinda Huntley, her pig, and Moustache Mary just added so much to an already great series. I'm also interested in seeing where the Casey storyline ends up. "
