Harley James, explorer and amateur cryptologist, has just arrived in Port Royal, Jamaica—home to the Caribbean’s famous sunken pirate city. Her latest mission? Prevent a mysterious, mythical blue pearl from being discovered and prevent city’s total destruction.
No sweat for an adventurer like Harley, right?
But just when Harley thinks she’s on the right track, everything she believes is turned upside-down. Her friends become enemies; her enemies become friends; and Harley isn’t sure who to trust—including the ghost who’s started following her around.
With time running out, Harley must rely on her codebreaking expertise to discover the truth, solve the riddles, and save the city from certain disaster!
Standing next to Dad was the captain of the ship, Tom. He was really tall—six foot something—and had teeth that lit up against his dark skin when he grinned.
I looked back toward the city of Port Royal, with all its boats and bustle. From where I stood, it was only about two inches tall on the horizon. Definitely far enough away that we weren’t going to crash into a wharf, especially with Captain Tom at the helm. Except for the fact that he was now standing next to me on the deck.
“Wait a minute,” I said, glancing at Tom. “If you’re here, who’s driving this thing?”
It’s bad enough being seasick, but being seasick on an out-of-control ship? That’s even worse, I thought.
“Oh, we’ll be fine for a bit,” Tom said. “This ship, she can almost steer herself.”
I clutched my stomach, not because I didn’t believe him but because another wave hit up against the ship, sending my guts into a nosedive.
Tom laughed. “You worried about your tummy? I have some tricks that may help. Walk with me.”
Dad nodded to me, signaling it was okay to follow. Dad is very overprotective of me, to the point where I get completely annoyed. Granted, I’m only eleven years old, but I am very capable of taking care of myself. In fact, last year, I saved the world from an army of Mayan zombies by stealing back a magical statue from a super bad guy.
