TOM SAWYER DETECTIVE

By (author)MARK TWAIN

 910 2,157

Twain’s two most famous creations, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, are reunited for a high-spirited and engaging tale of mystery and murder in deepest Arkansas. When Tom and Huck are invited to stay on Tom’s uncle’s farm in Arkansas, they jump at the opportunity to escape the tedium of a long winter at home. A chance encounter on a steamboat downriver, though, leads to a complex plot of diamond heists, mistaken identity and murder, involving the two boys in a bigger adventure than even they had in mind. Huck’s typical bemused and timid observation provides a poignant contrast to Tom’s frenetic ingenuity, as the mystery begins tortuously to unravel, and it is in these two wryly affectionate portrayals that Twain breathes life and warmth into his charming and unjustly neglected story.

Mark Twain is one of America’s greatest writers. Author of numerous short stories, comedies, historical fantasies and novels, he is now most famous for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, both of which drew heavily from his childhood experiences. Although the personal difficulties that befell him in his final years gave a sombre and troubled tone to his later writings, his work is characterised by an often ingenious of comedy and satire.
