Dead men tell no tales.
Until they meet ghost hunter Verity Long.
Verity Long is proud to say she gets along with just about anybody—dead or alive. But she’s put to the test when her well-meaning boyfriend and her sweet-as-pie sister con her into a remote island “double date” weekend with her sister’s new flame and Verity’s long-time nemesis, Alec Duranja.
Her plans to avoid the uptight police officer go up in smoke when the four of them team up for a weekend treasure hunt competition based on the island’s legendary pirate past. And it doesn’t take long for Verity and her team to discover more than game clues. Someone is using the game to dig up real pirate gold...and they’re willing to kill to keep it.
There’s no escaping the island or the game. And when the killer targets someone Verity loves, she realizes she’s the only one who can uncover the truth behind the legend. She must stay one step ahead of the dangers of the island and two steps ahead of Frankie’s new ghostly pirate buddies—all in a race against time to solve a centuries-old puzzle and take down a real live killer before he strikes again.
I can't believe this is book 12 already! In this addition to the series, Verity, Ellis, Melody and Duranja are on a haunted island for Melody's birthday. The fun part - they're competing in a treasure hunt! Unfortunately, searching for real treasure brings out the worst in some people.
It was fun to read the snark back and forth between Duranja and Verity. He does not believe in her ability at all, but Melody insists on them getting along. Verity's ghost hunting skills help them with the treasure hunt, however, and the relationship between Duranja and Verity changes.
Frankie was a little absent in this one. He was around the island, but the focus was more on the four, and the others groups competing in the hunt. Which I did enjoy, I just missed Frankie.
Overall, I thought this was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the changed of scenery and the treasure hunt.
Love this series
Another brilliantly written adventure by Angie Fox.
Verity & crew are entertaining as always.
