~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Yep, I read it and it's terrific - one of his best. Enjoyed it nearly as well as Their Wildest Dreams and that book remains one of my favorites by this author.

FYI -- If any interest in YA crime fiction (I have a 9 year old who read it for her "Mystery" book report for spring quarter -- and I read along, too), Abrahams wrote a wonderful, refreshingly not-dumbed-down twist on Alice in Wonderland for Grades 4-8 (?) entitled Down the Rabbit Hole, pub in April or May, 2005. Tough call on who enjoyed it more.
