Book Description

1 Oct 2008 Finnegan Zwake Mysteries (Book 1)
I DON'T KNOW WHY I FELT SICK. I MEAN, YES, IT WAS THE FIRST DEAD BODY I EVER SAW. BUT I SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE COMFORTABLE. AFTER ALL, MY WHOLE FAMILY LIKES DEAD THINGS.... Thirteen-year-old Finnegan Zwake is staying with his Uncle Stoppard, a bestselling mystery writer, and still hoping his parents will return from an archaeological expedition in Iceland. They disappeared there several years ago. Life with his uncle is fairly normal -- until the day Finn discovers a body in the basement. A dead body. It's in the storage area where Finn's parents left behind gold treasure from their last expedition. And missing from the storage space is a magnificent Mayan gold figure, the Horizontal Man....

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful new mystery! 19 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a great book for both kids and adults. I found Finnegan Zwake to be a charming and inquisitive 13 year old who is up for the challenge of a murder mystery. This is very well written, and kept me guessing right up until the very end. Perfect balance of suspense and humor -- I eagerly await the second installment of Finn's adventures!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever and witty 20 July 2000
By Sara Laren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dahl provides some new insight into the traditional young-detective genre with the oh-so-curious Finnegan Zwake. His first mystery is thoroughly drawn and funny. The only jarring detail was that I thought there was one misleading bit and not enough clues to divulge the identity of the murderer. All in all, though, a good debut novel with very interesting central characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of an enthralling series 12 April 2003
By Ather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Finnehan Zwake WAS a normal 13-year-old boy. That was until his parents, archeologists both, went missing after going to Iceland for an expadition. They've been gone, supposed dead, for seven years, during which time Finn has lived with his Best-selling mystery writting Uncle Stoppard. Finn hads grown into an almost normal life, until he discovers the dead body in the basement.
Killers and thieves, stolen gold and excavations, a boy and a nutty writer... culminating in a family secret. But mostly this whet's Finn's tongue for adventure. He won't stop until his parents are home and safe, however many books that may take.
I truly enjoyed this book, it is the start of a series I hope doesn't end any time soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS BOOK ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8 April 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book The Horizontal Man by Michael Dahl is a really good book! It's about a 13 year old kid named Finn and his uncle Stoppard. Uncle Stop is a mystery writer. Finn and uncle Stop solve several mysteries. They find out who took the Horizontal Man. They also find out who killed Larry.
I liked this book because it's a really good mystery book. Finn stays with uncle Stop because his parents have been in Ice land for 7 years! This is the greatest book ever. So read the book!!!!!!
