Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick
By teen libMarch 22, 2013
“They say that dead men tell no tales, but they’re wrong. Even the dead tell stories.” (page 2)
And in this case the dead refers to Sig’s father, Einar, whom Sig found frozen to death after having pulled himself free of a hole in the ice on a slowly thawing lake. And so the questions begin. Why was Einar traveling across the lake when he always, always insisted that you should never cross the lake once the weather began warming up? Who is this man Wolff that claims to have known his father ten years ago in the Alaskan gold fields? And the most important question of all, one with life-or-death consequences. Where is the gold that Wolff is demanding his share of? But since Sig doesn’t know the answers to any of these questions, the only one he is really consumed by is whether or not he can retrieve his father’s ancient Colt revolver from the small storeroom and use it to even the odds between himself and Wolff?
