Mystery of Ten 'Gator Bayou

143 pages2 hours


Though frightened by the discovery of a man’s arm on their trotline and the disappearance of the game warden and strange deaths of two alligators, teenage chums, Gary and Max, go about their summer job harvesting frog legs and catfish.

One night back in a dark slough, they stumble right into the middle of murder and illegal drugs. Pursued through swamps and canebrakes, the young men are captured and bound. They overhear the drug dealers’ plans to kill them and bury them in the swamp.

In a desperate effort to escape, Gary and Max leap from a second floor window of a warehouse into the swamp, brave a trek though snake-infested palmetto barrens, and take refuge on the only place left them, Alligator Island.
