Although they are teenagers, Kirstin and Arthur Davis have a track record as successful detectives. Their month of vacation with a relative in San Francisco while their parents are on a cruise turns out to be a great adventure as they try to solve an old mystery of missing gold. The siblings visit the Franklin Company, run by their uncle's friend, and are told about Fernando Montoya and his partner, Ted Franklin, who joined the Gold Rush. Both present-day Franklins and Montoyas are part of the firm's staff and are eager to know more about their respective ancestors. Important documents are stolen, blood is added to shark-infested waters while Arthur is diving for clues, both teens survive a building collapse and a sewer journey, and Kristin is kidnapped before the truth is revealed and justice prevails. The back cover blurb cites this title as part of a "good mystery series for Christians." It is a bit preachy in places, but it should appeal to the less sophisticated reader who likes high adventure and happy endings. (The Davis Detective Mysteries). KLIATT Codes: J-Recommended for junior high school students. 2003, Kregel, 188p., Ages 12 to 15.
