A buried key. A golden claw. Some ghostly goings-on . . . sounds like another case for Wilma Tenderfoot! Wilma Tenderfoot (feisty and determined assistant to the greatest living detective, Theodore P. Goodman) and her trusty beagle Pickle face their toughest task yet. A mummified body has been found buried in the grounds of gothic mansion Blackheart Hoo. Who is it? How did they die? And why is the mummy clutching a key? As things take a seriously spooky turn Wilma must solve the puzzle quickly . . . or risk being frightened to death! There's also the small matter of some buried treasure, a kidnapping and uncovering the grizly secrets of the Blackheart family. Wilma will need all her courage and cunning to crack this case. Gulp.
