About the Book

The year is 1961. Chris and Tom Sabo, cousins and best friends, are eagerly looking forward to a carefree summer vacation in their hometown of Elkville, Ohio. Swimming, camping out in the backyard, and exploring the woods and rocks of nearby Cascade Park are only part of their plans for the best summer ever. Eleven-year-old Chris, shy and nervous around girls, anxiously awaits the return of the girl he secretly adores; and Chris knows that with Tom’s wild imagination, excitement and adventure are never far away.

But the carefree summer vacation soon turns into a nightmare, as Cascade Park becomes the scene of a number of unusual accidents. But are they accidents? Could the "witch" who lives in an old mansion next to Marymount Cemetery somehow be responsible, or do the curious happenings in the park involve a distant relative of theirs named Eddie, a strange man who believes himself to be a famous detective?

As the boys learn more and more about the terrifying events, they are propelled into a mystery that reaches its ultimate climax during a violent snowstorm in the wilds of Cascade Park. Only then do they learn the astonishing truth.

About the Author

David Mittler has been a lifelong resident of northern Ohio, growing up in the shadows of Cascade Park and still making his home in Elyria. Since his graduation from Otterbein College, he has been continuously involved in education, serving as a junior high language arts teacher, a college English and writing instructor, and presently as the assistant principal of St. Richard School in North Olmsted.

Throughout his years as an educator, he has shared with students many of his humorous experiences about growing up in the 1950s and 60s, and the popularity of his storytelling inspired him to write his first novel, Love, Eddie.
