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.
