This trilogy eloquently illustrates how the seemingly impossible can happen. In the first story, Soccer Mystery recounts the tale of a young boy, Jamal, who discovers a lonely boy in an abandoned house. They quickly become friends and play soccer together daily. But as the boy’s mysterious presence becomes surrounded by unanswered questions, Jamal begins to wonder if his new friend is actually a ghost. The second story, Party House, shows a young family moving to a new city and buying a new home. As they settle in, neighbors begin to complain about the noise at night…the loud partying and laughing, but the noise is heard while the family is fast asleep! Finally, Shadows Across the Sea reveals a ship that mysteriously docks at a marina with one mate aboard, passed out, and no captain! What happened to the ship? Where are the passengers? Read Mystery in Trilogy to find out the answers to these burning questions.
