Hidden Mickey 5: Chasing New Frontiers follows Disneyland cast member, Blain Walters, as he and a beautiful Swiss visitor to Disneyland, Missy Johansen, stumble upon a decades-old, lost wallet. The wallet holds the key to a forty-four-year-old mystery of lost, stolen money and Walt Disney's legendary and mysterious red-diamond pendant. While Blain and Missy follow a trail of lost clues, they also find themselves wanting to follow their hearts as they find a real connection with each other. Adding to the intrigue, Blain is unaware that Missy is in reality—and incognito—the rising international pop star from Switzerland, Malaysia Hosiner. Where do the cryptic clues lead the young couple? How long can Malaysia keep her true identity a secret? And, who else seeks the long-lost Disney fortune?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Just finished reading the current latest book in the Hidden Mickey book series. This is another fantastic read and adventure through the park that Walt inspired, created, and loved, and presented to "children of all ages." Having been an Annual Passholder for 20+ years it is easy to see myself going on the treasure hunt with Blain and Missy, as I know pretty much where everything is and can picture the setting in my mind as the characters have their adventure. Just like the other books in the series, I am also tempte4d to go back to Tom Sawyer Island or some of the other "attractions" that are mentioned once again, so that I can experience the attraction again, after perhaps bypassing them for awhile, for the 'atmosphere entertainments.

It is a book that "grabs you" from the very first sentence and is a page turner that you want to keep reading to find out what happens on the next page.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hidden Mickey 5. The treasure hunt was fun and brought back many fond memories of my visits to Disneyland over the years. My first visit was in 1956. A delightful read combining first romance with an interesting mystery treasure hunt.
