From the Publisher
Spring semester at the Lab School in Hyde Park finds Petra and Calder drawn into another mystery when unexplainable accidents and ghostly happenings throw a spotlight on Frank Lloyd Wright`s Robie House, and it`s up to the two junior sleuths to piece together the clues. Stir in the return of Calder`s friend Tommy (which creates a tense triangle), H.G. Wells`s The Invisible Man, 3-D pentominoes, and the hunt for a coded message left behind by Wright, and the kids become tangled in a dangerous web in which life and art intermingle with death, deception, and surprise.
