Welcome to Ragged Island. Home to the largest pirate’s treasure trove in existence. It’s also home to the graves of the treasure hunters and pirates that have come seeking the booty. The latest owner is approached with an offer: a way to get the gold, and find out what happened to his brother. Dr. Malon Hatch thinks about it for just about twelve hours before he accepts the offer.
I found myself hating the engineer of this treasure pit. He had every right to hate the man who kidnapped him, but he took it out on humanity as a whole, culminating in the deaths of the innocent.
The story seems to be inspired by Oak Island. The authors seemed to be up-to-date on all of the discoveries about the place.
The best part of the book for me was when Isobel, the professor, and Hatch are trying to get one of Hatch’s childhood friends to go to the hospital. Pure genius.
