About this item

When leatherback turtles start washing up on Nova Scotia's South Shore, thirteen-year-old Will is alarmed. The deaths seem to be the result of loud underwater explosions Will has been hearing - but who and what are causing these explosions? And could there be a connection to the local ship-wreckers who endanger lives in their reckless efforts to plunder disabled boats? Theories abound, but no one can solve the problem, not even his cousin Harley, because she's too busy at the sail shop. So Will takes it upon himself to investigate, only to end up accused of murder when one of the wreckers, a one-legged man, is found hanging in his presence. But Will is not alone in trying to right wrongs; he has the ghost of "The Real" McCoy - his great-grandfather and legendary American rumrunner - who helps him navigate perils in this high-speed adventure on land and sea. This dramatic follow-up to the popular The Phantom's Gold reunites readers with Will and Harley as they try to defend the wildlife, the environment, and their family and neighbours in the historic town of Lunenburg.
