Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When a dog arrives at Spence Mansion, Seymour is overjoyed. His adoptive parents, Ignatius B. Grumply and Olive C. Spence, are less enthusiastic--especially when Secret, the dog, begins barking all night long. Is it possible Secret just misses his old companion, the late Noah Breth, whose children are fighting like cats and dogs over their father's money? Or does Secret have a secret that, in the end, will make the entire town of Ghastly howl with delight? <br> <br> This third book in the 43 Old Cemetery Road series, a runaway mystery told in letters, limericks, a last will, and loose change, is guaranteed to please anyone who's ever tried to keep a secret. <p> </p>

Horn Book Review

In this third installment about young Seymour and his caretakers (one who's alive, the other a ghost), a mystery and family dilemma are sparked by the discovery of a stray dog and by the reading of a multimillionaire's will. Previous visitors to Old Cemetery Road will continue to enjoy the Klises' clever narrative devices--letters, newspaper extracts, font changes, and well-placed black-and-white illustrations.
