The Oak Island Enigma

Steven Moore

After being approached by an enigmatic character at a bar in Cambodia, where Kane has been holed up for several months after the devastating events in Egypt, against his better judgment he gets tempted into one last mission. However, he soon learns that all is not as it seems. Thus, what begins as a harmless treasure hunt soon descends into an electrifying fight for survival, and then, a battle for justice. From a beach in Cambodia to the shadowy halls of Washington D.C. then from swamps of Louisiana to the mysterious Oak Island in eastern Canada, and finally to the Scottish Highlands via London, Kane battles his own demons as well as the latest in a long list of deadly adversaries. Those men want the same thing Kane wants. The only difference between them is that they will kill to get it.

I'm a big fan of The Curse of Oak Island series on TV. Not that I think that they'll find anything, but I still want to believe that there was a treasure buried on the island. The series is a bit of a cult hit, famous for bending the truth and always provides us with a good laugh. So, when I saw a book that's based around the mystery, I thought I'd take a read. What could go wrong?

Well, this book is not like the series. There wasn't much joy to be found in the series. Maybe it was the eight or so into a series, but I found the story left a lot to be desired. A washed-up drunk Hiram Kane is persuaded in a bar to investigate the mystery by a stranger. Then he's attacked by a group of men. The book takes an age to get to Oak Island, where nothing really happens.

Unfortunately, I bored quite quicky of the story. It seemed to revolve around Hiram going from bar to bar, getting drunk and having fights. I should have read some of the earlier books to get a kind of overview of the characters. This book isn't for me. A shame as I'd looked forward to reading it.
