The novel follows Misty as she gets caught up in a puzzle plot while assisting her father, an estate and antiques dealer. In the truckload of things, Misty stumbles upon a pair of extraordinary glasses and a special diary which help her solve a mystery that will keep you guessing and rooting for Misty to save the day! A sequel seems in order...
