Description of this Electronic Book
While holidaying on the banks of Hazard River (a name that doesn't exactly inspire relaxation), brothers, Jack and Ben, and friend Lachlan find a dead shark minus its fins. This might very well be the work of pirates-or perhaps the unfortunate beastie was molested by a giant squid. Whatever the cause, the boys are determined to get to the bottom of it.
And so, off the intrepid trio goes, sailing into the moonlight, dodging sandbanks and soldier crabs-and maybe, just maybe, pirates. But it is only the next day after the discovery of another finless shark and with knowledgeable, well-travelled Mimi onboard that the mystery stands a chance of being solved.
