Calling all Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys - and even Bond - fans!

By: Cait Morgan
Author: Cathy Ace
Title: The Corpse with the Crystal Skull

I don’t know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books when I was growing up, and I couldn’t wait for all the Enid Blyton “Famous Five” and “Secret Seven” books to be returned to the library so I could get my hands on them. I recall I always tried to read the books in order, but I couldn’t because there were too many other children trying to get hold of whichever book was available, so I, too, took whatever I could get. 

I never guessed I’d end up having an adventure like something out of the pages of those books, but I did!  When my darling husband Bud and I decided to spend some time at a luxury resort on the northern coast of Jamaica to celebrate my 50th birthday I’d expected to spend my time lolling about with a good book and a cocktail or two. 

I knew about the Jamaican legends connected with my namesake, Captain Henry Morgan, and I admit they made me think about all those books like Treasure Island, or the Enid Blyton stories where there are treasure maps with giant “X’s” on them, and Nancy Drew’s penchant for hidden passages…but I hadn’t expected to end up trying to work out who’d killed our host on the island in a locked tower no one could have got into, nor scrabbling around looking for buried treasure and getting caught up in something closer to an Ian Fleming novel than I could have imagined.

Apparently, turning fifty can be quite an adventure!
