For 200 years Oak Island in Mahone Bay kept its secrets. Treasure hunters came and left, spirits broken and bank accounts drained.
A British admiral's wartime journal brings new hope – and new dangers – to museum curator Carlos Sheldon and his student assistant, Lauren Gates, as they join the hunt for the elusive Money Pit treasure.
Dr. Sheldon and Lauren are met with suspicion and careful cordiality when they respond to lighthouse keeper Rudy Maddcok's invitation to translate the admiral's journal. With mounting tensions between the two rival treasure hunting companies working Oak Island, another interested party isn't welcome.
Desperation's run high as the Money Pit's 200th anniversary shines the spotlight on the Clemens and Yearbright operations' failures. With escalating debts and losses, one hunter takes a wrong turn, as another discovers the island's cruel hoax.
For Dr. Sheldon and Lauren, timing is everything.
