The danger-prone teens thwart drug runners, escape from federal agents, and side-rail assassins. When Ab first arrives on the ferry from New York, Bean is concerned that his longtime friend has grown up too much. She doesn’t seem anything like his mystery-solving pal from the summer before. To make matters worse, she has brought along a spoiled Middle Eastern princess, Dahab, and her strict governess, Miss Termagaunt.
Bean’s feelings are hurt by Ab’s snub, but he has bigger problems to handle. Meanwhile, Ab grows bored with her new lifestyle and vows to repair her friendship with Bean. She follows him and his friend Spooky, quickly realizing that the two boys are hiding a big secret.
As the adventure unfolds, the kids are forced through a harrowing series of narrow escapes by boat, ultralight, and mini-submarine. To complicate matters, bizarre occurrences indicate that the legends surrounding nearby Burial Island – site of a tragedy during the French and Indian Wars – might not be simply folktales after all.
