The adventure begins over two hundred years ago, when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his Perfekte Symphonie. He used ink made from pure gold to create each and every note. So extraordinary were the golden notes that they jumped right off the pages of the manuscript and ran away, seeking fame, fortune and adventure across the globe.
Today, there’s only one detective in the world who can bring them back together. He’s a talented musician who can play any instrument. He’s a brilliant detective who can solve any mystery. And he’s only three-inches tall. A three-inch tall mouse to be exact – who goes by the name of T.W. Strouse.
In The Case of The Haunted Swamp, strange sounds are emanating from deep within the Louisiana Bayou. Could the source be Mozart’s legendary Golden Notes? T.W. Strouse travels into the foreboding bayou to get to the murky bottom of the musical mystery.
The Case of the Haunted Swamp chronicles the search for Mozart’s golden notes and is written by Hollywood veterans Cliff MacGillivray and Kelly Ward. The pair has written hundreds of scripts for Disney, Warner Bros., MGM, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Celebrated artist and writer Phil Mendez, whose book The Black Snowman has sold over 2 million copies, provided the lavish illustrations. Talented colorist Hunter Wolf digitally colored the art.
The Midwest Book Review says:
“The Case of the Haunted Swamp is first in a series of symphonic investigations that will lure young readers with mystery and delight them with many departures from typical, one-dimensional approaches to problem-solving.” – D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, MBR
