In this fourth Jack and Jenny Mystery, the Carlton twins are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their friends, Ruth and Tim Chen, from Hong Kong. During the Chen’s first visit to the United States, the children share a thrilling adventure in the mountains of Colorado. Every day brings new excitement as they explore an old mining town, take horseback excursions and encounter a cantankerous old hermit who lives on the mountain with a vicious dog.
The twins’ natural curiosity and boldness eventually involve them in a dramatic rescue, an encounter with escaped convicts and an opportunity to share their Christian faith with a new-found friend.
Anthony Bollback skillfully guides young readers through one adventure after another at a pace designed to hold their interest. Throughout the book, the Carltons’ Christian faith and their unwavering trust in God plays an integral part in the story.
