Four young teens from Ocracoke Island, NC, whom readers will know from Mystery at Blackbeard's Cove, set out on their quest to locate and return some very old pirate loot to its rightful owners. They encounter a few obstacles, but nothing that a little ingenuity, the willingness to break a rule or two, and a handy forklift can't overcome! But the kids have also uncovered even deeper, ancient mysteries their discovery of a third trunk and a strange sandstone, mysteries that Blackbeard's ghost fears could bring the world to the brink of disaster. This second book of the Blackbeard Quartet is a great mix of comic adventure, pirate lore, historical mysteries, and the supernatural.
