My 9 year old said this book was really good, but sometimes scary. She read it in only 3 days. . .she could not put it down!

Parker and Matt decide to camp out one last time before the weather turns too cold - and stumble upon a dead man.

Parker swears he saw George Evans (his widowed mother's boyfriend and his least favorite person) at the scene of the crime. This starts a wild, crazy, and somewhat scary adventure.

Oh wow, this was action from the start! I enjoyed reading THE DEAD MAN IN INDIAN CREEK, and while it was supposed to be a big serious ordeal the boys find themselves in, it was also hilarious at times the fixes they got into along the way!

A quick mystery for reluctant readers.

The Dead Man in Indian Creek

Two boys adventure off into the woods for a nice weekend of camping and fishing, what they found was trouble. There is a lot of action and tension in this mystery book and Mary Downing Hahn knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat. I recommend this to any young kid wanting an excellent book to read.

Overview: The face stared up with deade eyes, its mouth open, its hair swirling in the creek water. Matt and his friend Parker found the dead man. He'd been murdered. And the worst part is, Parker thinks he knows the killer. He knows him all too well. But he needs some proof.

The evidence may be out at the Olde Mill, but Parker and Matt have to sneak out into the darkness to get it because nobody takes their story seriously. Nobody, that is, except the killer. And he takes them very seriously....
