Waiting for minimum critic reviews


My monkey Jack becomes a detective! Don’t worry, I don’t let him go it alone. I am Mac, the other half of this amazing crime solving duo. Jack has the knowledge of Sherlock—with some bizarre twists, the instincts of a monkey, and an obsession with candy. As for me, my passion was ice hockey, now it is sleuthing—the catalyst for that change shook my world and catapulted me and Jack into an imaginary realm of crime solving. Your imagination will allow you to join us as we take on pirates and enlist the help of our friends—both dead and alive—in solving the mystery of the buried treasure.
