Finn and his mystery-writer uncle are off to exotic Occo (located between Lesser Occo and Morocco). Uncle Stoppard has been nominated for the most prestigious award in mysterydom: the Ruby Raven. The grand prize? One million dollars, and a dark, carved bird, with real rubies for eyes and a ruby pendant dangling from its neck.
Finn's getting nervous. There was that strange car explosion just as they were leaving for the airport, and that Moroccan cobra slithering in his room. Coincidence? Or could one of the invited authors be too eager to win the bucks and the bird?
This paperback is in good condition with a spine flaw, a reader's crease, corner dings, and edge wear.
