“It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” 

Everyone has heard of ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ (1876) and ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’. But did you know that there are two more Tom Sawyer books also written by Mark Twain? 

The third installment in Twain’s Mississippi franchise featuring the St. Petersburg picaroon was the 1896 novella ‘Tom Sawyer Detective’ – a brilliant yet rarely talked about sequel to ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ (1876), ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ (1884) and a prequel to ‘Tom Sawyer Abroad’ (1894). 

‘Tom Sawyer Detective’ is a mystery story involving stolen diamonds and a twin brother, long since presumed dead. Tom’s uncle is charged with murder, but who has been killed? Where is the body and where are the diamonds? Tom, with Huckleberry Finn's help, is forced to take on the role of detective, and even courtroom lawyer, in order to save his uncle and solve the mystery. 

This fully enhanced E-book edition includes a selection of original illustrations by artists Edward Penfield, True Williams and Thomas Sully and includes link to free full length audio recordings of ‘Tom Sawyer Detective.’ 

“An excellent companion to the two well known works.” Goodreads review.
