When Charlie saw the river colored in black and orange he knew it would make a good picture.  He never dreamed the picture might lead to someone’s death.   Something was swimming in the picture; something Charlie felt was an otter, even though otters hadn’t been seen in the river for years.  There is also something strange going on involving young Peter Luttrell.  Charlie’s cousin Zoe is convinced that Peter has an evil eye—that he must be a witch.  Things happen when Peter is around, bad things.  But worse is to come as Charlie pursues the elusive otter and Zoe pursues Peter.  (Mary Huebscher, Librarian, Holy Cross High School, San Antonio, TX 78228 <>)
