Young Houdini: the Demon Curse by Simon Nicholson
Having just solved a mystery in New York, Harry and his friends expect life to return to some semblance of normal. This is not to be as they find themselves drugged and on a train to New Orleans, sent on a mission for the mysterious Order of the White Crow. In New Orleans they find the city in an uproar. The mayor is in a strange state and rumors abound of curses and demons. At the heart of it all is a small Haitian community, people well loved by Harry's good friend Billie. 

I was quite fond of the first Young Houdini book and this one is proving to be just as thrilling a read. A nice, largely historically accurate, kid's mystery.

What did you recently finish reading?
Monster Motors by Brian Lynch
Vic Frankenstein bought a garage and salvage yard in Transylvania, Kentucky in hopes of starting over. The problem? When he enters the garage, Vic releases a monstrous car known as Cadillacula which sucks gas from other vehicles and leaves them rusted out. The more Cadillacula drinks, the more powerful he becomes. With the help of his robot assistant, Vic creates a vehicle that just might be able to stop it: Frankenride.

Pretty much every classic movie monster you can think of makes an appearance in this graphic novel. The resulting vehicles are kind of cheesy but mostly fun. This is no great literature but entertaining enough and worth a chuckle or two.
