In Baker, Washington, three football stars fall into mysterious, hallucinating comas. Rumor is they are victims of Abel Frye, a dead student’s ghost who curses those who would pick on the less popular. Enter the Springfields, an undercover family of four who are secretly commissioned by the president to investigate strange mysteries, crimes, and unusual occurrences. They are The Veritas Project.
Elijah and Elisha, teenage twins, go undercover at the school but what they find only leads to more questions. All the victims are school bullies. Abel Frye was a high school student who hung himself in the 1930s. A stick figure hangman was etched into each victim’s locker. Is it really his ghost casting judgment or a secretive form of revenge? And what exactly goes on in the sectioned-off old basement of the high school?
Wow! Peretti is a genius writer, as usual, crafting the most amazing and original ideas. This is the kind of mystery you can’t put down until you read the very last word, then you spend the next week thinking over the story and everything that was in it. An amazing plot, intriguing characters…fantastic! Bring on book two. Highly recommended.
