Dear Mystery Agent:
Eleven-year-old Tyson Driggs used to go on all kinds of adventures
with his best friend, from sledding to shooting at the range to prune
juice drinking contests. They had promised each other that they would
go up to Wyoming and kill a big seven-point elk this season, but when
one of their adventures lands them in trouble with the police, Tyson's
parents stick his best friend in a nursing home.
His best friend is his seventy-six-year-old gramps.
Everyone tells Tyson that his gramps has an overactive imagination and
a taste for danger... and that's exactly what Tyson loves about him.
In the nursing home, his gramps asks Tyson to go on one more adventure
together: bust him out of there so they can go kill that elk. But
when Tyson discovers the real reason he's in the nursing home, the
adventure turns risky for real. His gramp's health is failing, but
how can Tyson say no to his best friend?
