Table of Contents

“In this novel for children ages 8–12 [Elise Broach] purposely leaves storylines dangling, the better perhaps to lure us back for sequels that will (we hope!) disclose what has gone missing on Superstition Mountain.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A spine-tingling adventure unfolds over the course of swift-moving short chapters, enhanced by Caparo’s engaging black-and-white illustrations throughout.” —Shelf Awareness

“Children will be pleased by the mountain climbing and clue-finding aspects.” —School Library Journal

“Broach follows her acclaimed Masterpiece with an exciting adventure set in a real-life Arizona mountain range that boasts numerous legends about colorful historical figures, unsolved murders, strange disappearances, and rumors of a hidden gold mine. . . . Classic horror and thriller elements combine with modern touches in Broach’s page-turner, a very promising start to this series.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“With the unusual setting, the lure of mystery and adventure, and a certain innocence reminiscent of the Boxcar Children series, this story should find a ready audience.” —Booklist
