Voice From The Grave Author:Doris Miles Disney It was the third summer that seventeen year old Howie Linsley and his friend Dennis Webb had planned a canoe trip into the backwods of Maine. They loaded their gear into Howie's Porsche, drove to Therrien's Landing to get the canoe, and started out....They never returned. Adele, Howie's doting and indulgent mother, refused to believe her only ... more »son was dead-even when the wreckage of the canoe was found. As the days stretched into weeks, there was no trace of either boy. And then one evening the phone rang and when Adele answered it a voice whispered, "Mother." He said he was in trouble; he persuaded Adele to mail him ten thousand dollars. And that was the beginning of the bizarre and cruel deception which carries this tale of suspense, by one of America's most famous mystery writers, to a truly shocking surpise ending.

I finished this book today. It was an enjoyable and easy read. I would say it was predictable, but the ending had a twist I did not see coming. The main character is shallow and easy to dislike, but this does not take away from the book. Good story!
