Something Rotten: A Horatio Wilkes Mystery

By: Alan Gratz

"Denmark, Tennessee, stank. Bad. Like dead fish fricasseed in sewer water." Horatio Wilkes is visiting his friend Hamilton Prince in Denmark, but the sulfurous air created by the Elsinore Paper Plant isn't the only thing that smells fishy. Hamilton's father is dead, and Hamilton's mother just married Hamilton's uncle. Horatio detects murder, but the killer is harder to determine when there are several possible suspects and motives. Can Horatio figure out whodunit before anyone else falls prey to rotten deeds?
