Another great book from Preston and Childs. This book is about an island off the coast of Maine that is shrouded in mystery and fog. According to local legends, there is a vast treasure buried in the island. But all attempts to get the treasure have resulted in injury, death and financial ruin. But at last, with millions of dollars in backing, and technilogial power, a task force is formed to retrieve the treasure, and solve the mystery that has confounded all efforts to do so in the past. As the story moves forward, the crew of this task force also sicken, get injured and die. What is at the heart of this island, causing all this suffering? I enjoyed reading this book, and hopefully there will be many more from this wonderful team of authors.
