Hank Turner, a good friend of Emmy and T.J.'s, is under suspicion for murder and mutilations of a hired man whom he threatened and fired several weeks earlier. A developer and a newcomer has purchased the Turner farm with plans to turn it into a roadside tavern. Emmy and T.J. keep their ears to the ground as they pretend to help out while gathering information on the proposed tavern. When Emmy discovers a sudden appearance of animal bones in the excavation of the Turner farm after a torrential rain, the game is afoot and Emmy and T.J. set off to uncover the truth. Along the way, the tween detectives are joined by a scruffy stray dog appearing at strange times and strange places, whom T.J. names Harry. Harry tags along with the kids on their many trips to the 'gravesite,' leading Emmy and T.J. to a nefarious secret. Together, the three sleuths struggle to save the town, and Hank Turner, from a greedy opportunist.

Emmy Budd and the Hijacked Train: 1) Emmy Budd had a great summer. What an adventure! I could imagine myself there with her. The story is about two kids, Emmy and T.J. who sneak onto a train to visit Pittsburgh, but it gets hijacked. My favorite part was when the hijackers axed the train tracks and when T.J. and Emmy were hiding in the train. They actually managed to stop the hijackers. T.J. and Emmy help to find the guy who got away by describing him. Someone recognized him and he was caught. The story was exciting! I liked it a lot. It was funny too, like when Emmy and T.J. flipped over in the canoe. This book is good for boys and girls and grownups too. Joey Alba, 9 years old 2) I loved the book Emmy Bud and the Hijacked Train because it was very fun to read and very interesting. I loved all the characters and thought that every single one had their own personality. In conclusion I loved the book and would give it five out of five stars. From Kaylee Brownsberger (age 12) 3) I liked this book (Emmy Budd and the Hijacked Train). I think she should write another one. Mia Garrett, age 9
"T.J., that's terrible!" And as if it weren't bad enough, he had to tell Emmy more.
"I don't want to hear any more." Emmy put her hands over her ears, but that didn't work. You can always still hear. The cute guy across the table from Emmy in the back of Jimmy's Malt Shop was so excited he almost burst telling her.
"It's pretty gruesome." As if that would stop him. Didn't they sit through every horror movie at the Roxy on Saturdays? Emmy was okay with gruesome. Usually.
"What's the one thing worse than finding a body buried in your backyard?"
"I don't know. But I know you're going to tell me," Emmy said, taking her hands from her ears.
"Finding a part of a body buried in your backyard."
"You had to tell me."
"You said you wanted to hear."
"I didn't say that. I said 'I don't want to hear any more.'" Had that stopped him? Of course not. "You made it up anyway."
"I didn't," he insisted. "Ask your folks. I'll bet your dad knows about it."
"When did they find it?"
"Yesterday. I guess there was something in the newspaper last week about some bones or clothing or something being discovered. Then what they found yesterday was in the morning paper. Didn't you see it?"
"I barely had time for cereal before I had to jam over here and meet you. Are you going to finish that crumb cake?" T.J. handed his last bite to her. What a cute guy.
"It was a hand."
