And they had to rescue Waterbury, the time telling turtle who walked into the deserted house - and didn't walk out. Djuna found clues and he added them all up to solve a case the Secret Service couldn't crack!
"The house is haunted," the fat stranger tells
Djuna and Bill. But the two boys don't scare easily. How they find out for themselves -
and what they learn - make front-page headlines. This eerie mystery thriller features a
vanishing girl, a Spanish-speaking parrot, and a time-telling turtle - in a case that
baffles even the Secret Service.
