The Mystery Of The Martello Tower (Hazel Frump Adventure) : It's the first day of summer vacation, and Hazel Frump's 12th birthday is just a week away. But she wakes up to find her art-dealer dad has disappeared, leaving her with Ned, her dangerously brilliant nine-year-old brother. The only clues are some mysterious emails - and they raise more question than answers. Does she really have family she never knew she had? And what does Interpol want with Ned? Before Hazel and Ned can find out, their summer plunges into chaos: a valuable painting goes missing, their apartment is burgled, the babysitter leaves town, and two menacing thugs begin turning up everywhere. Escaping to an island to find their long-lost relatives sounds good. But there's no escaping this adventure. It will take courage and skill - every skill they've got - from the basketball court to the chemistry lab. But even as Hazel and Ned gain help from family and friends, they learn of a second, darker secret. Only by solving both mysteries can they bring their father home.
