Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2

The Westing Game (1978) meets the supernatural in this high-stakes scavenger hunt through Boston. When Vincent Pryce dies (no, not Vincent Price, though both Vincents share a penchant for the extravagant and macabre), he, through his obituary, invites anyone and everyone to join in a game, which they can play by following a series of Edgar Allen Poe–inspired clues he's left in his wake. Tuesday Mooney, a professional researcher and puzzle-lover, decides to put her skills to the test. With an eclectic group of unlikely allies, she explores train tunnels, abandoned theaters, haunted houses, and more, making Racculia's latest, following Bellweather Rhapsody (2014), in many ways a love letter to the city of Boston. Though Vincent's puzzle itself is intriguing, so are the novel's characters. Some know more than they are letting on, some are keeping secrets about their past, and readers will be drawn in by their varied, personal reasons for playing, not to mention their wry interactions. A sharp, heartfelt story about loners working together for the sake of a shared adventure. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Normally a loner, Tuesday Mooney gets caught up in a massive scavenger hunt when eccentric Boston billionaire Vincent Pryce dies, having scattered clues throughout the city that will lead to a juicy portion of his wealth. And for Tuesday and her teammates, that means having to face ghosts from their past—some of them real. With a 35,000-copy first printing; from the ALA Alex Award-winning author (Bellweather Rhapsody), who currently works at the Bethlehem Area Public Library, PA.

PW Reviews 2019 August #2

Rarely does a novel so suffused with death radiate as much life as this spirited—in every sense of the word—genre-bending adventure from Racculia (Bellweather Rhapsody). The games begin for volunteer Tuesday Mooney at Boston General Hospital's annual fund-raising gala when, uncharacteristically, the self-possessed loner finds herself flirting with a handsome guest who introduces himself as Nathaniel Arches, of the Brahmin megabucks clan. Then Vincent Pryce—not the Vincent Price but an eccentric, cape-draped elderly billionaire famed for his love of the macabre—collapses. In his subsequently published self-penned obituary, he invites the city to play an elaborate treasure hunt with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe, for a chunk of his fortune. The challenge galvanizes a host of contestants, including Tuesday, for whom the dark side has held a fascination ever since her childhood in Salem, Mass., and the never-solved disappearance of her best friend, Abby Hobbes. As suspenseful as the adrenaline-pumping race will prove, testing competitors in ways they never anticipated, the author, like Vincent, has a deeper design in mind, which only becomes apparent with the book's immensely satisfying final bombshells. Racculia should win many new fans with this inspired effort. Agent: Bonnie Nadell, Hill Nadell Literary. (Oct.)
