Demian's Thoughts:

I was hoping that this would be another mystery along the lines of Who Killed Harlowe Thrombey?, but alas it wasn't. Instead it's a blend of mysticism and crime that I failed to find terribly interesting. The book has a few pleasantly creepy moments, but it's missing the sense of discovery that makes a good mystery (or most kinds of adventure, for that matter) engaging.

I know one thing. It's weird.

SherlockHolmes's Thoughts:

An interesting mystery with multiple plotlines near the enchanting Lake Tahoe.

As a child, it was a fascinating read, and inspired me to visit the real Lake Tahoe.
