For those fans of Chasing Vermeer, Petra and Calder are back with a new mystical mystery and an addition to their group! Calder's old friend Tommy has returned to the area and he is living in an apartment right next door to one of the houses built by the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Robie House is slated to be seperated into four sections and sold to different museums because the university cannot afford to fix it. But ghostly images and strange happenings keep occurring to the workmen in the house. The kids' teacher gets her classroom riled up about the impending destruction of the house, and Petra, Calder and Tommy, dubbing themselves the Wright 3, make it their goal to try and save it. There is some initial friction between Petra and Tommy as both vie for Calder's friendship, but the three end up using their own unique points of view to help solve the mystery of what's happening with the Robie House. There are strange connections with the book The Invisible Man, patterns in the glass of the house, a fish talisman, and ghostly voices. Readers will be eager to find out what is really going on at the Robie House and will be happily satisfied at the conclusion of the story. Another involving winner of a story by Blue Balliett.
