Book Overview

Finn," he said, "Don't go in." What was his problem? After days of climbing and trudging through the snow, I wasn't going to turn around now. I pushed past Uncle Stoppard into the cave and then froze.... This description may be from another edition of this product.

Wow!

This book had everything you could want in a book. It included murder, adventure, history, and mystery. I can't wait to read the next books by this author.

Funny and witty

I really enjoy reading Finn Zwake books, and this mystery in itself is intriguining. Finn and his mystery-writer Uncle Stoppard are on a trip to Iceland chasing the last reminants of rumors as to where Finn's parents are. Of course they have to go somewhere potentially dangerous, this time it is the Haunted City of Tquuli. Finn isn't spooked about the legends about the Haunted City and the Vikings that once lived there. That is, he isn;t spooked until a member of their rock-climbing expadition vanishes while hanging off the side of a mountain in a sleeping bag... another disapperence and some odd footprints... Ah ha! Now see how alluring it is. Believe me all is explained and if you read carefully and think critically you might just solve the mystery before hand. Enjoy!

An exhibition of evil...

When Finnegan Zwake and his famous mystery-writing uncle, Stoppard Sterling, go on an exhibition to Iceland in order to find Finn's parents and to discover the lost Viking city of Tquuli (pronounced too-cool-ee), they aren't sure what they'll find. But from the moment the plane lands (and Stoppard ends up with mints up his large nose) things start to get intersting. The two Minnesotans are introduced to the King of Ice Cubes and his wife, who are tagging along on this exhibition so that they can find new ice for their famous cube company: Roobick's Cubes (which can make even the most terrible soda taste good). After that, they meet the rest of their crew (none of whom would seem like the murderous type). Finn even makes a new Icelandic friend: Hrór Hrolfson. The climb is going great, and they are almost to Thor's Belly Button (where Finn's parents were last seen) when one of the members of the dig vanishes from his sleeping bag--which wouldn't be so odd if the sleeping bag was on the ground. But this one was on a "hammock" hanging to the side of an icy cliff 100 feet about the snowy ground. Once they reach Thor's Naval, will they be able to solve this strange mystery? Or will it lead them to even more mysteries and murders? Find out in this exciting volume in Finnegan Zwake Mysteries! This book was so funny and thrilling! If you read the first three, you need to read this one right away. It leaves you dying to read the next book, The Coral Coffin, which will not be out until probably November. I recommend this for fans of humorous books and mysteries.

A must-read for all Finnegan Zwake fans!

Finnegan Zwake and his uncle, mystery writer Stoppard Sterling, are finally traveling to Iceland to search for the lost city of Tquuli. Finn's archaeologist parents were last seen searching for the legendary city before their sudden and mysterious disappearance eight years ago. To reach Tquuli, Finn and his uncle must climb up the extinct volcano Thorsfell. Their party also consists of their guides - two Finnish brothers and their younger cousin, who is Finn's age - and members of an expedition led by Ruben Roobick, who wants to find new flavors for his line of ice cubes, Roobick's Cubes. Even after a freak accident and the disappearance of one of the guides, Finn is determined to continue on, desperate after all these years to find some trace of his vanished parents. Fans of the first three books about Finnegan will love this mystery, which is both scary and funny.
