When Adam Eddington, a gifted marine biology student, makes the acquaintance of blond and beautiful Kali Cutter at Kennedy International Airport on his way to Portugal to spend the summer working for the renowned scientist Doctor O’Keefe, he has no idea that this seemingly chance meeting will set into motion a chain of events he will be unable to stop.

Caught between Kali’s seductive wiles and the trusting adoration of O’Keefe’s daughter, Poly, Adam finds himself enmeshed in a deadly power struggle between two groups of people, only one of which can have right on its side. As the danger escalates, Adam must make a decision that could affect the entire world—which side is he on?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Tense, tricky, well-plotted, The Arm of the Starfish has all the stuff of which adult spy novels are made.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “From the opening paragraph…its atmosphere tense with hurry and frustrations, the story rushes ahead, never losing momentum.”

    Horn Book Magazine

  • “What [Adam Eddington] expects to be a quiet but interesting summer of work with the famous marine biologist Dr. O’Keefe becomes a time of intrigue, with Adam playing a leading role in the struggle to extract information on the doctor’s experiments with regeneration of starfish.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Taking sides (right vs. wrong) and teaming up provides both the suspense and the philosophical tug-of-war in this imaginative story of a sixteen-year-old high school graduate who unwittingly becomes involved in international intrigue…Adam is a dashing, sophisticated sort, but not without his human qualities. The situation has been foisted upon him but it is one which demands that he commit himself…Solidly detailed, excitingly sustained adventure.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The first book in Madeleine L’Engle’s O’Keefe family series is narrated with appropriate formality by Michael Crouch, whose delivery suits the old-fashioned storytelling…Crouch keeps the harrowing adventure moving with changes in pacing and inflection.”
