Join Suzanna Snow as she follows clues and eludes danger at every turn!

Suzanna "Zanna" Snow can hardly believe it: She's finally going to escape boring Loch Harbor, New Brunswick. She's received an invitation from her grandmother-the mysterious woman she's never met-to stay with her in Boston. Think of all the mysteries to be solved there!

While she's curious about her grandmother, she's even more excited for the chance to be close to her uncle, the famous Bostonian detective Bruce Snow, and her cousin Will, Bruce's assistant. Much to her chagrin, her grandmother enrolls her in Miss Lydia Doucette's Academy for Young Ladies, where all things proper are taught. In the meantime, Will recruits Zanna to help when a string of warehouse fires can't be solved.

Zanna gets some leads, the most interesting being the fires' possible connection to famous paintings. When a stranger starts following Zanna, she starts to wonder if all her snooping has caught the attention of the elusive arsonist.

Angie Frazier lives in southern New Hampshire with her husband and three daughters. She is the author of the YA novels Everlasting and The Eternal Sea, as well as the middle-grade novel The Midnight Tunnel.

Read from the Book

From The Mastermind Plot"Papa's having a dinner and I asked if I could invite you and Will. He should be there, along with the detectives and their wives and a few other people," Adele explained, distractedly shuffling her books underneath her arm. "Your grandmother probably received the invitation earlier today.""Oh," I said. Adele certainly seemed on top of things."Great."Adele nodded and then took off down the street without any kind of parting sentiments. Did she want Will and I at her father's dinner in order to discuss the case, or did she want us there as her friends?I started for Knight Street, finally realizing what it was about Adele that unsettled me. I could pick apart most people, determine their main characteristics, read their body language and their expressions. I couldn't do those things with Adele. And that was what kept me from trusting her completely.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Midnight Tunnel"This wonderfully atmospheric whodunit is just right for young readers who have made their way through Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys series but are not quite ready to undertake the grandness of Sherlock Holmes." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"What Zanna lacks in grace and composure, she makes up for in pluck, persistence and cleverness, emerging a likely and likable Edwardian Nancy Drew." - Kirkus Reviews"Mystery lovers will root for Suzanna as she works on solving her first mystery-and they will look forward to more Suzanna Snow mysteries." - Library Media Connection
