I hope the writing gets better, I hae a lot more from these authors in my boxes of books. It's one of those deals where it starts off like it might be good, then a whole lot of boring stuff and speeds up at the end. Also the authors tend to telegraph what is going to happen further along in the plot. For instance in the beginning when some tools brought ot a work sight are being examined they spend a page and a haof on one nail gun. Gee, I wonder why they spent to much time talking about how fast and hard this thing spits out nails?

I was roped in because the fictional setting of the book was based on Oak Island. Many people believe there is treasure buried by pirates worth millions and millions of dollars. People have lost all of their money trying to find this treasure. It is commonly known as the money pit. I heard the stroy years ago.
