A madcap tale of fog and phantoms. Opie and Aunt Etta think there's something funny going on when Professor Pepper announces that he's going to raise the ghost of a dead outlaw - live on stage. Can Opie cut through all the fog to get to the bottom of the professor's plans? "See the Ghost of Crookneck John!" That's what Professor Pepper's sign promises, and Opie can hardly wait to see such a sight. But the unseen specter escapes from his coffin during the show, and as if that weren't bad enough, the town bank is robbed too! Is Crookneck John a bandit from beyond the grave - or is more than the fog being pulled over the townsfolks' eyes? A reissue of one of Sid Fleischman's early novels.
