    The House on Hackman's Hill

    The House on Hackman's Hill

    by Joan Lowery Nixon

    Fast paced, and suspense packed, this short novel by a four-time recipient of the Edgar Allan Poe Award is a favorite with avid and reluctant readers alike. The main characters, brave cousins Jeff and Debbie, appeal equally to boys and girls. A $10,000 reward for a missing mummy lures the two into an old mansion. But a raging snow storm forces them to spend the night—and an evil ancient spirit might not let them see the dawn.
