Description: Legend has it that Captain Kidd buried treasure along the Jersey shore. Could some of the infamous pirate’s loot have been hidden in Cape May?Eleven-year-old Max is unhappy about being dragged along to spend a rainy spring weekend in Cape May with his mom and little sister. Things go from bad to worse when the kids are left in the care of an elderly neighbor, and worse still when the power is knocked out as the storm increases into a full-blown nor’easter. Their host offers to tell a story to entertain the bored siblings--a story he swears to be true. As the wind howls at the windows and thunder cracks overhead, they gather around the fireplace as he takes them back to the late 1940s when a boy about Max’s age and his little sister use courage, intelligence, and guile to follow clues through hidden rooms, secret passages, and coded messages in search of treasure thought to be buried by the infamous Captain Kidd.Review from “10-14 year old boys and girls who enjoy a good mystery will have a lot of fun with this story. The adventures undertaken in and around Cape May will also appeal to adults who like an engaging tale in a nostalgic setting.”VISIT STEVE LEADLEY'S WEBSITE:
