The primary plot element that launches this book is that the pendant gets stollen from Walt's private apartment, and the ensuing story involves a complex plan to get it back. The main character is Wolf (a secondary character in book 2), and the main "concept" in this book is that things that happen in the "real" Disneyland have a direct effect on what happens in an alternate reality past; specifically, there is an "actual" Tom Sawyer in 19th century New Orleans, and as things change in Disneyland, changes occur there as well. Wolf has the ability to travel between these two realities and interact (albeit differently) in both. I haven't really given much away, because you learn all of this within the first few chapters.
Quite frankly, I was very annoyed with these totally fantastic elements as they were introduced, but as I continued reading and enabled my "suspension of disbelief", I really enjoyed the characters and the clever way in which the plot played out. Although Lance and the other characters from the previous books play supporting roles, this book is about Wolf, Wals (a Disneyland Davy Crockett Canoe operator who was a minor character in book 2), a doctor who is new to this novel, and Rose, a woman from the 19th century.
As with the other novels in this series, you have to be a fan of Disneyland (or at least be familiar with the park) to fully enjoy this book, but if you are (as am I), then this is a very entertaining diversion. A warning: this book doesn't really "end" - it "stops". You will have to read book 4 to see how everything finally comes out.
The telling of this story was so real, and the characters so believable, I kept wondering if I could actually find some of these people working in Disneyland.
There are a lot of details going in this book that you really have to pay attention to what's going on or you could get a little lost if you're not careful. But it's so much fun, that you won't mind going back a couple of pages to make sure you're on the right track.
I was a little frustrated with the ending but that's only because there is even more to the story, and I'm not very patient in waiting for the next installment.
I'm thrilled to find out that there is not one, but two more books coming out with this series. As long a the authors keep up this level of storytelling, I will be anxiously awaiting their next books.
