Paul Zindel's novel, "The Doom Stone," is about a New York City teenager, Jackson, who goes to visit his Aunt Dr. Crawley who happens to be an archaeologist working at Stone Henge in the Wiltshire countryside of England. While he is there, he gets caught up in a supernatural suspense story that won't be spoiled. Paul Zindel serves up another short and creepy adventure with the Doom Stone. Jackson is visiting his aunt Sarah in wonderfully mysterious and ancient Stonehenge, the perfect setting for the adventure to follow. The creepiness in the story even extends to the girl Jackson befriends who, of course, is the daughter of a gravedigger. The terror is notched a couple of levels from some of Paul Zindel's previous books as the bodies begin dropping. He has written a fast-paced tale that moves quickly and manages to cover a lot of thrills in a very short space.
