Praise

“This worthy ‘second ending’ finishes on a hopeful note that series fans will embrace.”—Booklist, starred review

“It’s earnest Moose, always striving to do the right thing, who elevates this tale, like a hard-hit baseball, into the stratosphere.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Praise for the previous three Al Capone books:

A Newbery Honor Book

“Choldenko’s pacing is exquisite. . . . [A] great read.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

“Rich characterization, tender drama, and sleuthworthy clues, this poignant mystery makes for a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the landmark historical trilogy.” —Booklist, Starred review

“Choldenko continues to infuse the Alcatraz community with warmth and originality. . . . Despite being ‘the roughest hard-time prison in America,’ by the end of this winning series, it’s also a place Moose comes to proudly call home.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred review

“Choldenko’s storytelling is compelling, portraying human decency as a force more powerful than heroism.” —Newsday
