"The Dead House" is the second book in the Blackwater series by Allen Johnson Jr. It's the story of Rad Fox, a boy who lives with his widowed mother on the Blackwater River, and Dr. Jordan Mason, a family friend who is visiting, discovering an evil presence at the old Granger Hhouse. The twins, Will and Johnny, come to visit Linc, and Johnny gets deathly ill. In this multi-layered mystery, once again Linc shows the value of his skills in the Blackwater Swamp. A deftly crafted entertainment enhanced with the occasional inclusion of black-and-white illustrations, "The Dead House" is a compelling novel that will hold the rapt attention of young readers from beginning to end, "The Dead House" is strongly recommended for school and community library fiction collections for children ages 8 to 15.
