A Tale of High Seas Adventure
and the Mystery of the Insane....
Lilly Maytree has created a book you won't want to put down until you get to the end and then you'll be waiting for a sequel! Unfortunately having to put it down before finishing it was a problem for me, because I made the mistake of picking it up before I went to work. Bad choice on my part because I was left in suspense - literally until that night.
But my wait paid off with a well deserved and greatly anticipated late night of engrossing and engaging reading. (Did that clock truly chime 4 am? Yes, and it was a night well spent, though parting was sweet sorrow!)
D.J. Parker is onto the story of a lifetime and it may very well cost her her life! Tales of a legendary treasure lead D.J. to Nelson Peterson and unethical practices at a state mental hospital. After blowing the whistle, so to speak, D.J. sets off in search of the famous jewels that had been stolen during World War II.
But nothing is ever as easy as it sounds. D.J. is being followed, someone has trashed her home, and someone has laid claim to the Pandora, can things get any worse? Oh yeah, and do they ever! Especially when government agents get involved (at least they claim to be government agents) and D.J. comes up with a spur-of-the-moment explanation for her sudden unexpected departure.
True treasure awaits if they can survive long enough to discover it....
I was provided a copy of this book through BookFun (dot) org and the publisher Pelican Book Group in exchange for my honest review.
The Pandora Box by Lilly Maytree
While investigating mysterious happenings at a state mental hospital, journalist D.J. Parker learns the location of a famous cache of diamonds stolen during World War II. What she doesn't know is that the federal government has secretly been following the case for years. With an old journal to lead the way, she sets out aboard a yacht that once carried the infamous Herman Goering and embarks on a thrilling treasure hunt that could prove to be the adventure of a lifetime... if the captain and his partner don't turn out to be crooks. And the FBI officers following D.J. are really working for the FBI, and if the horrendous secret Dee uncovers during the investigation has absolutely no connection to the famous jewels. But just how long can a secret remain a secret? And more importantly how can a person know whom to trust?
