Down the Rabbit Hole is the first book in the Echo Falls mystery series by bestselling crime novelist Peter Abrahams. Perfect for middle school readers looking for a good mystery.
Welcome to Echo Falls, home of a thousand secrets. In Down the Rabbit Hole, eighth grader Ingrid Levin-Hill is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or at least her shoes are. And getting them back will mean getting tangled up in a murder investigation as complicated as the mysteries solved by her idol, Sherlock Holmes.
With soccer practice, schoolwork, and the lead role in her town's production of Alice in Wonderland, Ingrid is swamped. But as things in Echo Falls keep getting curiouser and curiouser, Ingrid realizes she must solve the murder on her own—before it's too late.
"Deft use of literary allusions and ironic humor add further touches of class to a topnotch mystery," said School Library Journal. "Intriguing twists." Publishers Weekly agreed: "The fresh dialogue and believable small-town setting will tempt fans to visit Echo Falls again."
The next book in this Edgar Award-nominated series in Behind the Curtain, followed by Into the Dark.

During the time the Elves lived on Earth, it was discovered some humans had magical abilities, but were untrained in how to use them. The Elves took on this task, and when the humans' time with the Elves was over, Valael created stones for each of the women of Raven Coven. It was then the Ancient Witch Line was born.
Down through the ages, the magic and the stones were passed from mother to daughter. Not only did they enhance the magic of each of the women who wore them, they would glow whenever evil was near. For this reason, they became known as the Demon Stones. Many coveted the stones, but they only worked for those tasked with protecting them.
As with all things, the legend of these stones fell into obscurity. Then, many centuries later, they were discovered once more. By some, through the discovery of a human who bears one, for others, through a prophecy foretold.
With this revelation, the first stone’s bearer sets out to find, not only her own stone, but the rest of the stones and their guardians. Where this quest will take her remains to be seen.
