When Jason's grandmother dies, he's sent down to her home in Florida to help his father clean out her things. At first he gripes about spending his summer miles away from his best friend, doing chores, and sweating in the Florida heat, but he soon discovers a mystery surrounding his grandmother's murky past.

An old, yellowed postcard...a creepy phone call with a raspy voice at the other end asking, "So how smart are you?"...an entourage of freakish funeral goers....a bizarre magazine story. All contain clues that will send him on a thrilling journey to uncover family secrets.

    " Hmmm. I read this because I liked the cover and need to read more YA mysteries. I might recommend this for middle schoolers, because it is a clever mystery book - full of clues found in postcards, old magazines. I couldn't get past the wooden characters, though. "
