Book Review


Professor Tobin has traveled the world collecting exquisite and priceless artifacts. He has decided to donate a number of the artifacts to the British museum. The night before the crates are delivered to the museum, one of the artifacts is stolen, a one-of-a-kind feathered mask from the Amazon. Maisie Hitchins, Professor Tobin’s young house maid and friend, determines to catch the thief. She has little to go on, but the Professor is counting on her. It turns out, thieves are not always what they seem, and maybe the feathered mask was needed more somewhere besides the British museum.
