Rating: 0 vote(s).

Strange accidents are stalking one of the skaters at Millwood Arena. At first it is just a falling ladder that
narrowly misses Paula, but soon the dirty tricks have become much worse. Everyone is on edge, including Angie, Paula’s main rival for a medal.
Who is behind the bizarre accidents? Angie knows she’s not to blame, but some of the skaters think she’s
suspicious. Angie doesn’t like playing detective, but she soon realizes that catching the real culprit is the only way to clear her name.
