For more than two centuries the Oak Island Money Pit has baffled researchers and foiled treasure hunters, and when Dane Maddock and Bones Bonebrake take up the search, they get much more than they bargained for. Danger lies at every turn as they search for a treasure out of legend that dates back to the time of Christ. Ancient wonders, hidden temples, mythical creatures, secret societies, and foes new and old await as Dane and Bones unravel a pirate's deadly secret in Buccaneer.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This book was great. Coming from someone who grew up in a generation of people wanting to be Indiana Jones, this hero has chops. It's an intelligent crew that will deal in violence, but would just as soon hang out in peace an use their minds to solve problems. Not too much machismo, not too lovey dovey. A good adventure story.
David Wood is a new author to, while Jeffrey Kafer is one of my favorite narrators. I absolutely loved this story with all of the action. Scenes of this book reminded me of some movies that I have loved. The author did a great job with the visualization and descriptions. The narrator did a fantastic job conveying suspense, awe, and tension. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. This story is a standalone listen. I will look for more books by this author and narrator. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.
When Maddock realized who he truly loves
Love the interplay between Bones and Maddock. Love the strong female characters of Angel and Avery. Another strong performance by Mr. Kafer. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
David Wood has again given is a fast-paced trip with all the right elements to keep it interesting. Pirate Treasure, Coded Maps, Secret Societies, and new twist to the crew. There is always excitement and some levity and they travel to throughout the Americas and the United Kingdom in search of and aided by the relics of King Arthur. Battling not only the elements and the challenges of Treasure Hunting but a modern-day foe looking for the Relics to support their own Secret Society. This is a very entertaining audiobook but sometimes the twist and turns happen so fast that you are trying to turn back a page to keep up.
This was the second Dane Maddock Adventure I have read and it is the best.

I rate on how mush I enjoyed a book, I am not a book critic.
I enjoyed the story. Fast paced, action adventure. But is was to rushed. More detail and description would make it better for me.
The narrator was good.

The duo of Kafer & Wood are well established. I have not listened to all the series but Wood does good keeping it fresh while not losing the books personality.
Kafer does well performing. If you like a fun, mystery and adventure book that will not weigh you down, then listen to this one.

This story follows a massive treasure hunt by Dane and Bones. It's full of intrigue, danger, suspense and uncertainty. It's well written and full of many descriptive images.
Jeffrey has great diction. He's clear and articulate. On occasion, I found myself confused on which character was talking in the story.
Fantasy & UF reader/blogger/writer. Content Editor. Photographer. I prefer to live in my own version of the world,no matter how weird it is.
This is an older audio book for Jeffrey. And I enjoyed it. Jeffrey was free to voice different people with different tones and accents, making them all unique and easy to know who's talking in the story. This is just fun to listen to. Jeffrey's voice feels perfect for Dane and Bones's personalities, along with the crew around them. As always, the audio is seamless and clear.
Our guys meet Avery for the first time in this book. She seems to fit in perfectly. lol. And there's a reason for that. We learn it here. I love Angel, Bone's sister. She's one kick butt kind of woman, just as tough as we would expect. She gets into the rough and tough fights just like the boys. Oh and this woman can hold her own in those fights.
I think I say it every time I listen to one of these books, I just love the easy sense of humor I get from Dane Maddock, Bones, and all around them. They make me smile and I enjoy their dangerous adventures. Avery even has a wonderful sense of humor, even in a time of stress. lol.

I enjoyed learning a bit more about Dane's parents in this book. The project we are on is connected to his father's research. Sadly, his parents were killed in an auto accident, but we see their impact on Dane which gives us a feel for them.
We also see the beginnings of other groups that could be trouble for Dane and Bones after this book, and I know it will be. Also that Dane and crew will work with in the future.
What they find! Oh my! Then my minds wheels start turning. How did something like that come into existence so many years ago? In a time it shouldn't be! Very interesting. I can't tell you what they find as it'll take the wow away from you. You just have to read or listen to find out.
I enjoy the writing as we focus on the current job/project that we are on. There is always enough to bring us to want more as well, to solve all the mysteries behind the ages old treasures. And there are more books to do just that. Though, there is two places where the wrong character was named, someone who wasn't even there at that moment. But, I'll over look that with the love I have for these characters and thrilling stories. (Heck, this audio is from 2012, so the book could have been re-edited to fix it since then, in case you read it.)
I find I get anxious when listening to these stories. I want to sit and listen to it all on a fast speed so I can get the whole story right now! lol. I don't. I listen at regular speed to savior all that's said and the performance by Jeffrey.
Loved this story. Very fascinating. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
