Only Eric Walters could pull it off: he's delivered another intelligent, action-packed mystery, this one featuring a puzzling treasure hunt based on the real-life, mysterious Money Pit on Nova Scotia's Oak Island. It also features the discovery of a human skull -- and then of an entire body. At the same time he skillfully and sensitively portrays an 11-year-old boy and his 13-year-old sister as they come to terms with their grandfather's failing mental health. No one should be surprised. Eric Walters has carved out his own successful niche in a very competitive field.

The Money Pit Mystery is the story of Sam and Beth, who accompany their mother on a visit with their grandfather at his home on Oak Island. This is their first visit in three years, since their mother and grand-dad had a terrible fight over something nobody wants to talk about. Something strange now seems to be happening to grand-dad, a fact confirmed by his odd behavior and the disgusting state of his once-immaculate home. He's also spending a lot of time engaged in a bizarre hunt for a 200-year-old treasure. When amateur magician Sam is bitten by the treasure bug too, the whole family is plunged into a break-neck-speed mystery in which the winner will take all.
