Twelve-year-old Martin Jessup, teller of tall tales and other untruths, cannot understand his sister's objections to the family's move from Winnipeg to small-town Ontario. With Dad in the military, moving is a fact of life. Settling into his new home, Martin is intrigued by a deserted house across the street and by an unfriendly neighbour, who seems to be waiting for something to happen. Martin and new friends Granger and Holly form a club that meets in the deep end of an empty swimming pool. The friends tell Martin that the deserted house is all that remains of the Govier estate and about an unsolved mystery - the disappearance years ago of Victor Govier. One night, Martin sees a light in the deserted house and the adventures of the Deep End Gang begin. This gentle small-town mystery will appeal to admirers of Peggy Dymond Leavey's Silver Birch Award-nominated Sky Lake Summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great book! This book is another one of Peggy Dymond Leavy's great books. She is probably one of my favourite authors!!!!This book is very mysterious of how they want to find out about the old abondond house. They take on a scary, funny and mysterious adventure, but the question is will they find out who lived in the old house and why no one lives there now? Read this book to find out. Also this is a 2004 Silver Birch nomonation and I think it will win!
