The House on Loon Lake

Listen to this story... 

This American Life, November 16, 2001 · Adam Beckman offers a sort of real-life Hardy Boys mystery about a young boy, an abandoned house, and the mysterious family who once lived there but seemed to disappear without a trace. (Thanks to WBEZ and PRI, who produce the show.)

This Driveway Moment was suggested by...

Robin, who listens to KPCC in Southern California.

"I pulled into the parking lot of the restaurant where I was attending a birthday party. There was no way I was going to miss the end of this spellbinding narrative -- I stayed right where I was until the end!"
