There is something irresistible about a cave. Shining Pearl had warned James and the other Lost Boys that the Cave of the Dark Wind is a dangerous place, occupied by a fearsome creature, but for the youthful adventurers, this shadowy cavern was pleading to be explored. At the beginning, this naïve daring seemed justified by their discovery of a tantalizing clue about a long-sought haunted treasure. But the mood changes instantly when Captain Hook and his bloodthirsty gang of pirates join the plunder hunt. Before they can say "Shazam!" the boys are fleeing for their lives, plunging deeper and deeper into the gaping earth. A mesmerizing adventure story.
