Emily Rodda’s popular Raven Hill Mysteries features six Australian teenagers whose odd-job service, Teen Power Inc., leads them to mystery and adventure.Given an energetic, youthful-sounding performance by Rebecca Macauley, Green for Danger finds one of those teens, Nick, minding a beautiful house that has been recently robbed of some valuable jewels. Watching over the mysterious home, he is swept up in the search for the culprit. MacCauley performs with an Australian accent, which modulates to accommodate different characters, and ratchets up the tension as the mystery moves toward a surprising but satisfying conclusion.
Minding a luxurious house seemed like fun to the Teen Power gang at first. But now Nick is feeling more and more uncomfortable. Suddenly the house seems like a prison, or a tomb. Is it the sealed windows and doors? Or the aquarium fish swimming in endless circles? Or maybe it's just that a fortune in emeralds was stolen from the house, ruining its owner, and disappearing without a trace.
