Description

Jake, a 14-year-old gadget whiz, didn't plan on a summer full of treasure, thieves, and danger. He just got lucky.

While in Ireland on a class trip, Jake stumbles upon the first clue to a treasure missing from the Spanish Armada. Jake sees the riches as his chance to buy back the family sailboat and restore a piece of the life he enjoyed before his father was critically injured in an accident. Desperate to find the treasure, Jake teams up with Zach, his nemesis and class bully, and two girls in a clue-hunting chase across the Dingle Peninsula. Dodging would-be thieves, exchanging wisecracks with Zach, and concocting ingenious devices to get them out of scrapes, Jake leads the team as they connect piece after piece to the more than 400-year-old mystery. Jake, a 14-year-old gadget whiz, didn't plan on a summer full of treasure, thieves, and danger. He just got lucky.

This was a mystery/adventure with a treasure hunt. Although the clues are easy enough, they have a creative and surprising touches. It was a fun time to travel around the Irish countryside.This has a good storyline and characters that race through abandoned churches, secret passages and empty museums and the characters are truly wonderful. ***I received this book in return for an honest review***

This was heaps of fun! Very Famous Five-esque, with a lovely rural Ireland setting, some hidden Spanish treasure, and a pack of bad guys hot on the heels of the four kids as they collect and put together the clues to find it.
