"Push a man to the edge, and he might just fall off."
Things are always going awry in Smallville. When Danny Franklin, a friend of Clark, Chloe, and Lana's, is found in the Franklin's pond dead, along side his sister Betty, they immediately use Chloe's "Connections" to secret files to look up some research on what or who killed the entire Franklin family. They have many suspects, but Jed Franklin - the father and only body not found of the Franklin family - is a main suspect for murdering his family on account of the layoffs from Luthor Corp. Meanwhile, Lex's dad has been kidnapped and Lionel's kidnapping and Danny Franklin's death occurred simultaneously! Now Clark, Chloe, Lana, and Pete are on the case to save Lex's dad and find out who really killed the Franklin family. Could Jed Franklin have been upset enough to murder his entire family? Or is that what the real murderers want us to think?
I really enjoyed this book and could barely put it down. It was very intriguing and delightful read. I suggest it to any Superman or Smallville fan; since the book is based on the T.V. series "Smallville" I knew it would be good. The trauma between Lex and his dad and the mystery of Clark Kent that baffles Clark's friends is the perfect balance of drama and suspense that will have you peeking at the next chapter every time.

First, Clark and his friends Chloe, Lana, and Pete discover a schoolmate's dead body in a pond on the boy's farm. As they investigate, police turn up the body of the boy's murdered sister. Other grisly discoveries follow, but the father remains missing.
Secondly, Lex Luthor's tycoon father Lionel is kidnapped in Metropolis. Lex has to decide whether to pay a ransom or attempt to rescue his dad, whom he hates anyway, while avoiding FBI authorities he thinks will bungle the investigation.
Both stories were interesting enough to keep me reading straight through, and as the kids investigate the murders, the question is raised whether they're connected to the kidnapping. It all
comes together to a dramatic conclusion.
This one doesn't have much science fiction, but as suspenseful escapism reading it's outstanding. If you're a serious fan of the show, this book will satisfy you like an extra episode between seasons - it's very faithul to the series in characterization, tone, etc. And if you've never seen the series, it's still good reading.
