The truth is Tom likes to have fun, whether it's digging for treasure in a haunted house, exploring dark and mysterious underground caves, playing pirates on rafts downriver with his best friend, Huck Finn, or faking his own funeral.But when he and Huck witness a midnight murder, the real trouble begins. For the murderer is none other than Injun Joe. And now joe is looking for Tom!
