Publisher's summary

Sleuthing duo Emily and James tackle their most challenging mystery yet, set on the haunting Alcatraz Island. 

Legendary literary game maker Garrison Griswold is back in action - this time with "Unlock the Rock", an extravaganza on Alcatraz Island. But just as the fun starts to take off for Emily and James, important items from Griswold's game begin to disappear, and someone is framing Emily's brother, Matthew, as the criminal. As the friends jump from one clue to the next, they discover a web of connections between the stolen items and a tragic 19th century mystery involving Harriet Beecher Stowe.

This new historic enigma is irresistible, but it might be impossible to decipher. And with Matthew's record on the line, Emily and James can't afford to leave this mystery uncracked.

Grandson got me hooked!

My 9 year old grandson suggested I read book scavenger and the adventure began in April. Just finished this book in September. Very interesting stories and great characters.

OMG!

I love this book! What a perfect ending to the series! I thought it was boring when the detectives always win but in this book the criminals get away! How genius!

Another great story

es.  As with the other books, the characters use teamwork and solve puzzles to unravel the mystery.  This time it is all wrapped up in an event on Alcatraz!  My son and I really enjoyed going through these books together.  This one had some funny twists (165 goldfish!) and a really cool reveal I did not see coming.

great listen

really enjoyed this one. I learned some facts about Alcatraz and had fun doing it. Loved the red herring, and the mean characters. It is great to see the good kids stick together and do things right. I hope there are more books in this series

Another good entry in the series

I so enjoy the Book Scavenger books! They are Fun and inventive, and have important themes about friendship and family without being overbearing or preachy. The language is eloquent and you never feel talked down to. And, of course, it’s all about books and is meta In a clever way!

The whole package in terms of character, intrigue, suspense, plot, and language.
