Abbey and her best friend, Bee, set out to solve another mystery with its roots deep in Southern history in this follow-up to J. E. Thompson's The Girl from Felony Bay. For the first time in a long time, things are looking up for Abbey Force. She lives on Reward Plantation with Bee, and her father has just recovered from his coma. But then their neighbor's dog, Yemassee, is kidnapped, and they are the only witnesses. They decide it's their job to find the men who took him.

This dognapping, though, will lead Abbey and Bee into something much deeper. And before they're through, the girls will once again have to dig through the hidden history of their South Carolina home in order to set things right.

Review quote

Not your average children s mystery, this one has depth. Add to that some likable characters, steady plot pacing, and just some good writing, and you ve got a unique story that questions the ethics of the past and present while offering a good adventure to boot. --School Library Journal"

Back cover copy

Just in case your memory's as short as a South Carolina snowstorm, I'm Abbey Force, and my best friend, Bee, and I spent the last few months solving this crazy mystery involving robbery, betrayal, and a lost chest of Spanish gold. We also managed to clear my dad of the crimes everyone thought he'd committed (even though he still hadn't woken up from his coma). Not too shabby for a summer vacation.

Now, though, my dad woke up, which is great, but he somehow got it into his head that he needs to start taking cases again. Then me and Bee saw something simply awful: our neighbor's dog, Yemassee, getting kidnapped by a couple of rough-looking fellas with guns.

I don't know what all this means, not yet. But I do know that if you try to mess with my dad, my friends, or my friends' dogs, you've got trouble on your hands. Trouble that goes by the name of Force.
