Title: Trixie Belden and the Mystery on the Mississippi
Author: Kathryn Kenny
Dates: 12/5/16 – 12/8/16
“Heavy feet mounted the steps … nearer … nearer … nearer. A key was inserted into the lock. It opened, and the man’s bulk filled it. The morning light shone full on his sneering, wicked face.
“‘Still alive, are you?’ he said, grinning maliciously.
“Trixie looked hopelessly into Honey’s eyes. It may be the last time I’ll ever see her, she thought. The last time I ever see anyone I love.”
One of the most riveting stories in the series in which Trixie continues to take matters into her own hands, even when authorized to stop her investigation by the authorities. In the end, though, as always it all pays off.
