Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure
A Lucas Caine Adventure: Book 1
Franklin/Kerr Press 2016
A 300-year-old mystery from one of the world’s most notorious pirates leads to the adventure of a lifetime for two friends – an adventure which could lead to fame and fortune, or to their deaths.
Deep within the archives at a museum in Raleigh, NC, Darwin Trickett makes the discovery of a lifetime: the diary of Blackbeard’s wife and a folded treasure map tucked in its pages. He asks Lucas Caine for assistance in helping find the location marked on the map, which they believe was drawn by Blackbeard.
Now, these two friends embark on a journey in search of treasure. They uncover clues leading them to several locations along the Carolina coast while being shadowed by a group of mysterious men.
By the time Darwin and Lucas unravel the puzzle, they find themselves fighting for their lives.
What happens next will rewrite the history books and change the two men’s lives forever.
