Nickel is a young boy with two interests, animals and photography. When he and his mother are forced to move because of rising rent, it is Nickel who discovers “The Beastly Arms Apartments,” a mysterious building owned by a still more mysterious man. Perhaps the building is a little creepy but the rent is very affordable, and soon Nickel and his mother move in.
Soon Nickel becomes determined to uncover the secret that must lie behind The Beastly Arms. As he explores the apartment building and the life of its enigmatic owner he discovers a well kept secret that will change his life completely.
"The Beastly Arms," is a well written story. Patrick Jenning's characters are well presented, with colorful personalities, and subtle details. The plot is exciting with a consistent undertone of mystery. I would recommend this book to animal lovers and fans of mystery books.
