Baker & Taylor
Traveling by freighter to Venezuela with their scientist father, Poly and Charles O'Keefe investigate, with the help of their friend Canon Tallis, the murder of enigmatic Forsyth Phair and and the theft of his prized portrait of Simon Bolivar

McMillan Palgrave

Thirteen-year-old Simon Renier has no idea when he boards the M.S. Orion with his cousin Forsyth Phair that their journey to Venezuela will be a dangerous one. His original plan—to return a family heirloom, a portrait of Simon Bolivar, to its rightful place—is sidetracked when cousin Forsyth is found murdered. When the portrait is stolen, all passengers and crew are suspects. Simon’s newfound friends, Poly and Charles O’Keefe, and their scientist father help Simon try to find his painting, and his cousin’s murderer. But will they succeed before they land? Or will the murderer and thief escape into the jungles of Venezuela?

& Taylor

A thirteen-year-old boy's trip to Venezuela with his cousin culminates in murder and the discovery of an unexpected bond with an Indian tribe, dating from the days of Simâon Bolâivar.

It is really interesting but I figured out the crime by the time I read about half of the book.

The second book in L'Engle's O'Keefe family series, it was entertaining for a YA book. I like all of the life lessons, but I really want to slap the main O'Keefe character. I like that science is usually at the forefront of L'Engle's stories, and still is here, but it's paired with more mysticism than usual (with the younger O'Keefe's dreaming) which I thought was very interesting.
