Besides Adventures in Odyssey episodes and devotions, a membership in the Odyssey Adventure Club gives you access to lots of different Focus on the Family content, including the three audio dramas in The Last Chance Detectives series, as well as the three films produced. And now for a limited time OAC members will be able to read the novel Canyon Quest, which serves as a prequel to the show. The first six chapters are up on the club as of July 16th and more will be uploaded every Thursday until the book is completed and the mystery is solved. But make sure you don't delay your summer reading too long. Canyon Quest will only be available to read on the OAC through October 1st. After that it'll be more difficult to get your hands on this out-of-print book. If you're thinking about checking it out, you can read the novel's summary here:
Fans will learn how the Last Chance Detectives club was formed in Canyon Quest, the prequel to the Last Chance Detectives series. When Mike Fowler and his mom move to the dilapidated small town of Ambrosia in the Arizona desert, he is still agonizing over the loss/disappearance of his dad in the Gulf War. Determined to ferret out the truth about his dad's fate, Mike begins studying books on detective work. As a mystery crops up in Ambrosia, Mike is drawn into the case and, in the process of solving it, comes to know Ben Jones, Wynona Whitefeather, and Spence Martin. Their success together in this adventure leads them to form—at the book's conclusion—the Last Chance Detectives.
