What could possibly go wrong when twelve-year olds, Corey Palmer and Michelle Pritchard, have to time to kill on a hot summer day? With these two, a lot, since they have a knack for getting into places they don’t belong, exposing secrets and finding dead bodies. While exploring the court house, they get stuck in the clock tower where they discover the body of a young man who also got stuck over fifty years earlier. They’ll end up spending much of what’s left of their summer vacation trying to find out who the young man was, how he died and why no one ever found him until now. Along the way, they’ll put their friendship at risk, uncover some not-so-pleasant facts about their home town, and learn a lesson or two about history.
