This wasn't the best mystery ever, however it was pretty intriguing, and quite a short read. I wanted it to be more compelling, but the ending leaves you needing to read the sequel to find out anything. I wouldn't recommend this if you're looking for a mystery, but if you want something more of a modern adventure for tweens in the dangerous Arizona mountains, this just might do.

After 10-year-old Henry and his two brothers (6-year-old Jack and 11-year-old Simon) move to the town of Superstition, Arizona with their parents, they are warned to stay away from Superstition Mountain, but aren't told why. They team up with a girl named Delilah to explore the secrets of the mountain, discovering skulls of people who went missing over 50 years ago and other intriguing finds. The story is also about Henry trying to live up to his namesake, his daring great-uncle who frequently hid out in the mountains, but Henry himself isn't sure he can do it. This is a fairly short and easy read.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Some scarry scenes for little people, many people are killed when they read about what happened to people back in the 1800's, people being shot,beheaded,stabbed, etc.
