IUnfortunately, I read his, Coffin's Got the Dead Guy on the Inside. I kept waiting for something to happen but, except for a few purported car chases, nothing really does. It reminds me of a couple of books in the Swallows and Amazons series where a group of kids somehow manage to outwit and overcome the baddies. The differences being the kids in Snyder's book are a lot older, and Ransome was not aiming to entertain adults. Mark
