Publisher's Summary

Ghosts, a kidnapping, a crew of young detectives, and family secrets mix in this new stand-alone mystery set in the world of the best-selling Greenglass House, from a National Book Award nominee and Edgar Award-winning author.

Marzana and her best friend are bored. Even though they live in a notorious city where normal rules do not apply, nothing interesting ever happens to them. Nothing, that is, until Marzana's parents are recruited to help solve an odd crime, and she realizes that this could be the excitement she's been waiting for. She assembles a group of kid detectives with special skills - including the ghost of a ship captain's daughter - and together, they explore hidden passageways, navigate architecture that changes overnight, and try to unravel the puzzle of who the kidnappers are - and where they're hiding. But will they beat the deadline for a ransom that's impossible to pay? 

Legendary smugglers, suspicious teachers, and some scary bad guys are just a few of the adults the crew must circumvent while discovering hidden truths about their families and themselves in this smart, richly imagined tale.

Great, BUT read the others first

You'll be confused without reading her other Greenglass House books first. Another warning - this is not an "action" novel. Sure there's suspense and some action scenes, but this is not the one punch after another of Percy Jackson. I don't mean that as a slur, but when my son was in his Percy phase a few years ago this would have been too slow for him since a lot of the plot is interpersonal or even just in the main character's head. Climax isn't the greatest, not as good as "Ghosts" but getting there is a lot of fun. If I explain more I'll spoil it, but I so wish it had been a little different. I hope this group of characters comes back - strengths and flaws that balance to make a great team. And dare I say it? I thought Meddy wasn't entirely necessary. I don't think you could possibly understand her character without reading the other books first, and the book would have been fine without her. In the earlier Greenglass books I found Milo's "issues" a little overdone and his parents cloying - in this book Marzana's social anxiety is much more believable and relatable, and her parents, while equally background, thankfully don't treat her like a glass ornament. Narrator does a great job with a slew of voices, but sometimes seems to lapse into a lisp.
