Blood on the Handle by R. A. Montgomery takes YOU on an intriguing adventure to solve a murder mystery at your Uncle Morgan's gothic mansion. 9-12 year old readers will go on high-speed chases, search for answers in a wax museum, wander into a voodoo ceremony, and investigate ancient Egyptian sarcophagi that might contain clues.

Choose Your Own Adventure Blood on the Handle is an interactive adventure book in which YOU decide what happens next.

You live in New Orleans with your Uncle Morgan and come home one day to find his study splattered with blood, a dagger sticking out of the floor. Do you search the mansion's secret passageways for clues or sneak onto a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter? Can you trust any of Uncle Morgan's strange friends? What secret identity may he have been hiding from you?

About the contributor(s)

R. A. Montgomery attended Hopkins Grammar School, Williston-Northampton School and Williams College where he graduated in 1958. He pursued graduate studies in Religion and Economics at Yale and NYU. Montgomery was an adventurer all his life, climbing mountains in the Himalaya, skiing throughout Europe and scuba-diving wherever he could. His interested included education, macro-economics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels and music. He wrote his first interactive book, Journey Under the Sea, in 1976 and published it under the series name The Adventures of You. A few years later Bantam Books bought this book and gave Montgomery a contract for five more, to inaugurate their new children's publishing division. Bantam renamed the series Choose Your Own Adventure and a publishing phenomenon was born. The series has sold more than 260 million copies in over 40 languages. He was married to the writer Shannon Gilligan. Montgomery died in November 2014, only two months after his last book was published.
