Parker and Matt decide to camp out one last time before the weather turns too cold - and stumble upon a dead man.

Parker swears he saw George Evans (his widowed mother's boyfriend and his least favorite person) at the scene of the crime. This starts a wild, crazy, and somewhat scary adventure.

Oh wow, this was action from the start! I enjoyed reading THE DEAD MAN IN INDIAN CREEK, and while it was supposed to be a big serious ordeal the boys find themselves in, it was also hilarious at times the fixes they got into along the way!

A quick mystery for reluctant readers.

This story is scary.Through the whole story I wondered who
murdered the man.In this story there were no dull parts at
all.One of the best books I've ever read!And it's hard to please
me.When I was done I wanted to read it again.I'm 11 so I'm really interested in these stories.I would tell kids and adults
about this story.When I told my class about the story the
whole class was like when you're done can I read it.So I had to
do a drawing to pick out a name to read it next.There is only
one word to decribe it WOW!!!!!!READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!

This is an excellent book. It may be considered a kids' book, but it deals with many adult themes such as drug use, child abuse, murder, etc. The book is thrilling and should be made into a movie (if it hasn't already). I would recommend this book for people ages 11-14.

The Book ,The Dead Man In Indian Creek . The Author of my book is Mary Downing Hahn .The date this book was published in 1990. I like this book because you want to see what happens next example while there camp,and you stop rate there, it make you wonder what is going to happen next. My short summary was wile camping near Indian Creek. Matt and his best friend going to see a blue heron . Instead,they found a dead man floating.

Format: Paperback
This murder mystery book of only 130 pages, would seem to be a sound choice for 3rd to 5th graders,but it does have an adult nature to it. The two boys in the story are 12 years old, one is being raised in a single parent family (mother). She is involved with a man, the boys believe to be involved in the murder. She leaves him alone, repeatedly. There also is reference to teenage drug and alcohol parties at the quarry where the boys have a fort built. The murder is connected to cocaine drug dealing of which the mother is involved in. While these are themes we see every day on TV and in movies, probably best read with a parent or as a pre-adult.

The story Dead Man On Indian Creek was a great book for people ages 10-14. I thought this was both funny and scary. And it actually shows what a son would actually do for his single, hard-working mother. This story was about two boys who love to go hiking and are best ffriend's. But Peter's mom goes out with a guy who looks and acts very supicious and when they find a guy dead on indian creek they think they know who did it.And when they go and tell Peter's mother she thinks there crazy. The setting was beautiful and perfect. It's great for a children's book. When you are reading to the description of the place you can paint a picture in your head of what they are doing. It also makes the story seem mmore realistic. I thinkthis is one of the best settings in a book I have ever read.
