Overview

For as long as she could remember, Ab and her family had spent summers on Penobscot Island, off the coast of Maine – and far away from the sun-baked streets of their home in New York City. And every year, she spent time with Bean Carver who was her best friend, even if he didn’t seem to notice she was a girl. This year, Bean tells Ab that the Moses Webster House where she is staying with her parents is haunted, and the two friends become immersed in the history of the house and solving a mystery involving missing treasure, stolen paintings, a wailing apparition, and a tragic shipwreck. The discovery of certain ancient devices hidden in the walls and floors of the old house lead them deeper and deeper through a web of secrets and peril, closer and closer to the chilling truth of the missing grave.

David A. Crossman is a modern-day polymath who – in common with polymaths throughout time – has yet to be sufficiently beguiled by any one sphere of endeavor to apply himself to it exclusively. As a result, he’s a best-selling novelist, an award-winning lyricist and composer, a writer of short stories, screenplays, teleplays, poems, and children’s books, a television producer/director (also award-winning), a video producer, radio/television talent, award-winning graphic, computer graphic artist, advertising copywriter, videographer, publisher, music producer, musician, singer, performer and … well, you get the picture. He’s shiftless – in all things but his devotion to Barbara his wife of…well, let’s say over 35 years and leave it at that.
