Ghosts don’t leave footprints!

There’s a mysterious light in the old, burned down house across the road. Could it be the ghost of old lady Hampton? Or maybe the firefighter who died trying to save her?  And why is Mrs. Tsosie so afraid to get close to the property? Kenny doesn’t believe in ghosts, but when strange footprints are discovered in the neighborhood, he and his brother search the old ruins for clues. Kenny knows he is getting close to unraveling the mystery when he discovers firsthand just how dangerous crime solving can be!

Review provided by Bob Heaton, author

My grandson goes to school in Albuquerque and is 14 years old.  He was so enthused with your book, I picked it up at about 8pm last night and couldn't put it down until I had finished it at almost midnight.  What memories your book brought back!  When I was about 10 years old, 69 years ago, I was a huge fan of The Hardy Boys, Frank and Joe.  Kenny and James reminded me of them.  Mike, Katie, their angry, overwhelmed mother, the old Navajo woman, Mrs Tsosie, and Deputy Foutz all seemed very real to me.  Great job Jack!  The story was very compelling, and the "red herrings" you threw in there really added to The Secret of  the Haunted House.  Your book is not just for preteens and teenagers though, us old grandpas can enjoy it also!
