KIRKUS REVIEW

To many youngsters, ciphers hold endless fascination, and for them, the fact that the solution of the mystery is found in unravelling the ciphers will override the fact that this is a pretty incredible story, leaving lots of loose ends. The setting is a Georgia town; an architect with a mysterious past loses his suitcase containing his plans just as he is going to redeem his reputation; his home is rifled, a crowd of children who set about being detectives are manhandled. But eventually, it is the children who solve the puzzle.
