Twin brothers, Al (Alistair) and Peter Montague, have recently solved the case of the Bradford’s missing dog. Their guardian, David, orders them to take a day off from sleuthing. David and his wife, Shelly, took the boys in after their parents disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The twins set out to enjoy the summer day along with Charlie, the couple’s daughter when they suddenly encounter a strange storm and a mysterious robed figure. Later that evening, three girls go missing, including Mr. Bradford’s daughter.

The Montague Twins: The Witch’s Hand by Nathan Page and Drew Shannon is an exciting new graphic novel.

The story has depth and humor and is also a page-turner. It includes magical characters and spooky settings as well as the classic cemetery showdown. The ending hints at future mysteries still left to be solved by the Montague twins.
