A strange woman seems to have eerie control over people. Is it science . . . or strange and ghostly? Find out in this new spooky chapter book series, Spooky Sleuths.

Asim's field trip is freaking him out! His class is on a boat, exploring the Salish Sea, when he sees a pale, scowling woman staring at him from under the water. Asim's friend Rokshar thinks it's just a seal. She always finds a scientific explanation for the strange things that happen in town.

But when Asim's dad hears otherworldly music coming from the water, he feels so drawn to it that he tries to throw himself in! Could a fairmaid--a mermaid from Guyanese folklore--be to blame?

Find out . . . if you dare! Don't miss this new series based on ghost stories from Guyana.
