Terror on Kamikaze Run

by Sigmund Brouwer

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In Terror on Kamikaze Run, Ricky Kidd, his brother, and his friends are given a free trip to Zebulon, a ski resort in Colorado Springs which is owned by Mr. Avery. Their mission is to find out what is causing several mysterious happenings, and why the owner is hiding the incidents.

Ms. Avery, who is the owner's sister, has sent them on this mission. Soon after their arrival, an unexplained fire burns down the rooms where the boys are staying. The teenagers learn that the ski resort is built on an old mine. There is also a long forgotten legend of the gold miner's daughter who was killed in the mine.

Weird things begin to happen, such as an explosion on a skiing hill and a broken rope on a first-aid sled. Are all of these events linked? Who is the gold miner's daughter's "ghost"? Who wants to ruin the ski resort? Want to find out these answers? Then read Terror on Kamikaze Run.

Sigmund Brouwer is an award-winning author. He speaks to kids in America and Canada in an effort to encourage children to read and write more. Although an obvious Christian agenda doesn't appear in his novels, there is plenty of morality and redemption to make his books worthwhile for Christians. This book is a real page-turner; the mystery unfolds with perfect timing to keep readers on their toes. Highly recommended. -- Jessica Loughner, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

When Ricky Kidd and his friends are given an all-expenses-paid trip for a skiing vacation in Colorado, it sounds like the perfect winter getaway. Their benefactor gives them just one responsibility: find out why the ski resort owner is concealing mysterious happenings. But fires, an avalanche, and a legendary ghost are more than the Accidental Detectives bargained for!

Determined to discover the truth, Ricky comes up with a bold plan. Searching for the person responsible for the “accidents” doesn’t seem that dangerous. After all, with Ricky’s foolproof scheme, what could go wrong?
