Overview

Watch out The Timberline twins are on the loose. Bryce and Ashley are ATV-riding tweens from Colorado who unearth action-packed mystery and adventure wherever they go. From clearing the name of a local miscreant to thwarting a gold-stealing heist, the twins' growing faith and the strong example of their parents guide them through even the most life-threatening situations. With the trademark page-turner style used by Jerry Jenkins and Chris Fabry in the Left Behind: The Kids series, these fast-paced books will keep even reluctant readers on the edge of their seats.

Chapter Excerpt


Chapter One

Ashley

I wasn't trying to save anyone's life or catch thieves that lazy Sunday afternoon. I wasn't even thinking about the stuff Bryce and I would do after the last day of school. I was just trying to read a book and not doing a very good job because I kept nodding off. Do you ever do that? Try to read in bed, then drop the book and scare yourself and have to hunt for the page you were on?

I finally gave up and went to sleep. The phone woke me, and I tried to put on my best nongroggy voice. No idea why I do that either, as if there's something wrong with someone catching me asleep.

"Kathryn?" an older woman said. She sounded out of breath.

"No, she's not here right now. Can I take-?"

"Ashley, it's me"

"Mrs. Watson?"

Peanuts, her dog, barked in the background. He's a Chihuahua, so his bark sounds like someone breaking glass in your ear-shrill squared.

"Is your father home?" Mrs. Watson said.

Interesting question. Not a good one when your mind is filled with Sunday-nap cobwebs. My real dad had been dead for years. But she knew that. Sam's my stepfather.

"No, he took Mom and Dylan out to the cheapo theater to see some-"

"I just got back from my trip," she said. "Will you have him call me?"

Trip? Mrs. Watson hadn't told us about any trip. "What's up?" I said.

She tried to quiet Peanuts, but the dog was yipping his head off. "Something's wrong," she said. "Something's terribly wrong."

"You want Bryce and me to come over?" I heard the thud, thud, thud of his basketball behind our house.

"Would you?" She sounded like me on my first night of algebra homework.
