Abstract:

"Mark Twain’s two most famous creations, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, are reunited in this high-spirited and captivating tale of mystery and murder in deepest Arkansas. When Tom and Huck are invited to stay at Tom’s uncle’s farm in Arkansas, they jump at the opportunity to escape the tedium of a long winter at home. A chance encounter on a steamboat downriver, though, leads to a complex plot of diamond heists, mistaken identity, and murder, involving the two boys in a bigger adventure than even they had in mind. Huck’s typically bemused, folksy narration provides a poignant contrast to Tom’s frenetic ingenuity, as the mystery begins tortuously to unravel, and it is in these two wryly affectionate portrayals that Twain breaths life and humor into his charming, unjustly neglected tale."--Amazon.
