Publisher's Summary

When Lewis, his uncle Jonathan, and their friends Rose Rita Pottinger and Mrs. Zimmermann take a trip to a small town near Lake Superior, they expect a pleasant vacation. Instead, they find themselves facing the ghastly Ishmael Izard, son of the fiendish creator of the Doomsday Clock that was once hidden in the walls of Uncle Jonathan's house. 

Ishmael himself is a cruel and heartless sorcerer, and he is determined to wreak vengeance upon the entire world. Will Lewis and his friends be strong enough to defeat him, or will their fate be decided by their most formidable foe yet?

Lewis Barnavelt and company return to form

I had been a bit worried about the series after the previous volume. But this book has restored my faith.

Here, Lewis, Rosarita, and the others return to face a threat from the very first book. A quick and clean story. Good characterization. neat plot. All back to top form.

Good series entry.

Bad book in an otherwise excellent series

This is one of the only books in this series that I don't like. It just drags on and on without really grabbing your interest. Try some of the others in the series instead.
