MYSTERY OF THE OLD THORNDYKE

An unbelievable but catchy kind of adventure happens to two professor's sons from Midwestern University as their father (having broken his leg) sends them off to Carson City to supervise the demolition of the Old Thorndyke Hotel. David, 16, and John Paul, 14, are descendants of Paul Wildinson who had witnessed King Thorndyke's heyday of cattle rustling, which he ended oddly by willing his hotel to the University. With their special interest the boys tackle the problem of disappearances in the hotel and find that a derelict descendant of King's is haunting the place to hunt for King's hidden fortune. Good suspense with historical trimmings and a dry humor that makes the boys seem older than they are.
