Bick, Beck, Tommy and Storm, who have grown up helping their parents find and recover lost treasure from the ocean, must now search for their own parents, who have mysteriously disappeared. They must evade dangerous pirates and treasure-seeking rivals in this exciting, humorous mystery - the first in a new action series.

The four Kidd children are experts in navigation, sailing, scuba diving and karate because they have been homeschooled by their famous parents, who are professional treasure-hunters.

However, both parents are now missing. The children decide to continue the treasure-hunting business for now, using their parents’ ship, called “The Lost”.

When they sail to New York City to resume their parents’ latest undertaking, the children experience an action-filled journey as a rival treasure-hunter proves just how ruthless the competition can be in the world of treasure-hunting. The rival sends a boat of fiendish pirates, some evil scuba ninjas and an endless list of other enemies to attack the children and their ship.

Working together and using their many skills, the children are able to overcome the attacks while unravelling some cryptic clues to find out what has really happened to their parents.

The non-stop action and entertainment in this absorbing, suspenseful and “over the top” sea adventure are continued in a second book about the Kidd children, entitled Danger Down the Nile.
