For his 13th birthday, Steve's grandfather takes him on a trip to Algonquin Park. Steve thinks it's going to be boring, but his grandfather has something else in mind, he has set out clues for Steve to find and follow until he discovers the answer to the mystery of what happened to painter Tom Thompson's missing skull after his suspicious death on Canoe Lake in 1917.

As Steve follows the clues, odd things start to happen: the clues seem to make less and less sense, there are odd characters hanging around and his grandfther has disappeared. Is this all part of the game, or is there something much more sinister going on? Is the real mystery whether Steve will escape from the danger he finds himself in?

Wilson successfully creates a series of layered mysteries each more compelling than the last…[The Missing Skull is]a story that blends history with current popular culture in a way that will appeal to tweens looking for an adventure story…readers…will enjoy the voice and humour…The Missing Skull is a great, fast-paced read. A perfect addition to any summer reading list Recommended." CM Magazine.
