Ever since Tory Brennan and her friends rescued Cooper, a kidnapped wolf pup with a rare strain of canine parvovirus, they’ve turned from regular kids into a crime-solving pack. But now the very place that brought them together – the Loggerhead Island Research Institute – is out of funding and will have to shut down. That is, unless the Virals can figure out a way to save it.
So when Tory learns of an old Charleston legend about a famous she-pirate, Anne Bonney, whose fortune was never found, she can’t believe her luck – buried treasure is exactly what she needs to save the Institute on Loggerhead! Trouble is, she and her friends aren’t the only ones looking for it. And this time, the Virals’ special powers may not be enough to dig them out of trouble . . .
I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first because it was just WAY too improbable !
The teens being infected with a rare strain of canine parvovirus and having super powers is bad enough but I can live with that-it’s the finding of the buried treasure that had me rolling my eyes. For hundreds of years experienced treasure hunters had looked and failed the find the treasure of the pirate Anne Bonney, but along comes four teenagers and viola they find it in a matter of days. GIVE ME A BREAK!
While is was okay to listen to, I don’t know if I’ll check out other books in the series.
Scavenging hospital ruins in northern Hungary, two Roma boys stumble on something more valuable than usual black market finds. The chain of events threatens many lives. In Denmark, Red Cross nurse Nina Borg puts her life and family on the line when she treats Hungarian Gypsies living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. What are they hiding? What makes them so sick?
THE INVISIBLE MURDER, the sequel to THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE, is a gripping thriller which sets the three distinct narrative threads running before entwining them in a nail-biting race against time climax. Nina acts much more rationally in this second book, and yet still cannot seem to win and her ethical acts take a toll on both her and her family, physically, emotionally and personally. The authors weave politics into their characters’ lives, from the issue of immigration in Denmark to the racism and prejudice faced by the Roma and this is what makes this series of books an interesting as well as an exciting read.
Although, Nina inadvertently put her daughter in harms way, she didn’t mean to, and her husband,(I thought ) should have been more understanding instead of LEAVING her. And, on top of that he left her while she was still recuperating in the hospital. If you ask me, she’s better off without him. Just saying .
This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I look forward to reading another by the author.
