When the Bells Tolled at Midnight
It's just a regular, somewhat dull Thursday-- but then Sean Sutherland, orphan and ward of his great uncle Justin, suddenly finds himself awash in an ocean of mysteries in his seaside home of Nawshant, Massachusetts: who's ringing deep, cathedral-like bells at midnight from the middle of an impenetrable conservation area? Or is the 91-year-old heiress who hires Sean to solve this mystery imagining things? And why has Sean never heard of a distant cousin his own age, Kyle Sutherland, who comes to live with them? And why does Kyle have such attitude? And why is he sneaking out at night? And what's going on between Sean and his best friend Matt? Come join in the rollicking, page-turning fun as Sean, his friends, and even his attitudinal cousin uncover a mystery far greater than they could have imagined, involving a priceless Revolutionary artifact, a missing John Singer Sargent painting that's been 'borrowed' rather than stolen, and one frighteningly-large Tina Turner wig.
