Review: The Kootenay Kidnapper (Eric Wilson)

Read-a-thon review #25!

I loved that this book was set in and around Nelson, which is close to where I live. It was also interesting to note that it was first published when I was five years old, so it was like a glimpse back at my childhood. šŸ˜‰ The writing was okay for a suspense but it was strange how trusting the kids in the story seemed in the midst of a kidnapper-on-the-loose setting. And I had to remind myself that of course they couldn’t just pull out their cell phones and call for help… šŸ˜‰

What is the secret lurking in the ruins of a lonely ghost town in the mountains of British Columbia? Solving this mystery is only one of the challenges facing Tom Austen after he arrives in B.C. with his sidekick, Dietmar Oban, and learns that a young girl has disappeared without a trace. Then a boy is kidnapped, and electrifying events quickly carry Tom to a breathtaking climax deep underground in Cody Caves, where it is forever night…ļ»æ
