Is the ghost of John Wilkes Boothe haunting an innocent history professor? Perhaps her husband isn't too keen about her nights with history instead of his hunkery? It's up to Scooby-Doo and the Gang to find out.

John Rozum informs the reader about the life of John Wilkes Boothe. He plausibly connects the Gang to the professor and cleverly throws in a metafictional joke involving their eternal youth.

Rozum trips up our ghost with a perfect clue requiring the Gang's acumen. He also gives Scoob and his friends depth that pertains to their behavior outside of the trappings of the mystery. This is something I have always liked about Rozum's take on Mystery Inc. He imagines their life beyond that of unmasking fake ghosts.

Artists Roberto Barrios Angelelli and Horacio Ottolini mesh well to forge a spooky drama. They impressed so much that I almost thought Joe Staton had returned to the book.[1]
