Great for mystery/ghost/adventure fans. If you like Holmes, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and/or Goosebumps. You will enjoy this.

Possible Spoiler:

The story had a definite Steven King Graveyard Shift vibe. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Packed with mystery and action and written so that it can be enjoyed by all ages. I love the way the author incorporates the pets' point of view into the story, that's something you dont see often. The characters were strong and believeable and the story was very entertaining and well written.
I finished the book in one sitting and i honestly dont believe there was even one dull moment. I recommend this book to all and I can't wait for the next one. ( )
