"[S]uspenseful, exciting, charming, and even unexpectedly moving."
"Traditional red herrings and dead ends add classic pleasures to this less-than-traditional story, allowing for plenty of reading pleasure by mystery fans, budding philosophers, or just those drawn by the artistic or the unusual."
"Art, intrigue, and plenty of twists and turns make this art mystery a great read."
From the Publisher
Editors Note This bewitching first novel is a puzzle, wrapped in a mystery, disguised as an adventure, and delivered as a work of art. When unexplainable occurrences bring Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay together, strange things start to happen, and the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal.
Annotation A series of mysterious events brings Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay right into the middle of an international art theft--one so confusing that even the FBI can not solve the crime. However, in order to solve the mystery themselves, Petra and Calder must first find and decipher the clues hidden in a succession of confusing puzzles. Clever readers can play along by searching out the clues hidden in the B&W illustrations. A New York Times Notable Book for 2004. Winner of the 2005 Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Juvenile Fiction.
