Publisher's Summary

A return trip down the Mississippi River to Uncle Silas's farm is just the beginning of a yarn that includes twins, a diamond heist, a confidence man, a murder, and enough twists and turns to satisfy an avid mystery fan.

Tom Sawyer attempts to solve a mysterious murder, and along the way, Mark Twain examines the social customs, legal system, and family expectations of the time as only Twain could.

A sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Tom Sawyer Abroad, this is Mark Twain's satirical take on the immensely popular detective novels of the time. Like the two preceding novels, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn. Once a staple of juvenile fiction, then banned as politically incorrect, Twain's well-told story brings to life its time and place.

What the Critics Say

"A careful and conscious artist, Twain became a master of the technical devices of exaggeration, irreverence, and deadpan seriousness; sensitive to the sound of language, he introduced colloquial speech into American fiction." (The Reader's Encyclopedia)
"Twain's best work is not only classic humorous writing but a graphic picture of the 19h-century American scene." (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
