Synopsis

A return trip down the Mississippi River to Uncle Silass farm is just the beginning of a yarn that includes twins, a diamond heist, a confidence man, a murder, and enough twists and turns to satisfy an avid mystery fan. Tom Sawyer attempts to solve a mysterious murder, and along the way, Mark Twain examines the social customs, legal system, and family expectations of the time as only Twain could. A sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Tom Sawyer Abroad, this is Mark Twain's satirical take on the immensely popular detective novels of the time. Like the two preceding novels, the story is told using the firstperson narrative voice of Huck Finn. Once a staple of juvenile fiction, then banned as politically incorrect, Twain's welltold story brings to life its time and place.
