This offering is Volume One in Joe Slade’s Mushroom Village series. Enjoy following Dan Miller on his first official murder mystery as The Mushroom Village’s only detective. Explored in this tale are questions of law in a lawless world with a backdrop of a village that is both open and set in its ways. The village, for those who don’t already know, is set in a Michigan county which was given up on after a mega tornado tore it apart and was subsequently bought by private citizens. This mystery gives us a glimpse into how folks who come to a sacred place feel, and how the folks who live there feel about the visitors. Of course, the Evil Magician makes his presence known, as he is the president of the co-op. This mystery is maybe mostly about getting to know the funkiness of the village in the summer time. As Dan’s family gets involved in the case the reader is shown a typical day in the life of village teenagers.
