From the Publisher:
While in St. Petersburg, Florida, to help clean out his recently-deceased grandmother's house, thirteen-year-old Jason finds an old postcard which leads him on an adventure that blends an unfinished detective story with his family's past. Reprint.
Annotation:
Stumbling onto a decades-old mystery is not what Jason had in mind when he's forced to go down to St. Petersburg, Florida, to help his father clear out his recently deceased grandmother's belongings. But in her home, Jason uncovers links to a pulp-fiction novelist, uncovers some deeply troubled family relationships, and has an unexpected transformation himself. A 2008 Edgar Award Nominee in the Best Juvenile category.

Praise

"The plot shimmers with originality even as it evokes genre fictions...Abbott paints a muggy and evocative picture of contemporary St. Petersburg and effectively haunts it with the candy-colored dreams of mid-century Florida, exemplified in the luridly tinted period picture postcards, reprinted in black and white in the book, that serve as clues to the locations of the chapters of Emerson's story." 5/1/08
