The Emerald Casket by Richard Newsome: Book Review

It the month since his great-aunt Geraldine died and left Gerald with more money than he could ever imagine, he has had to try to solve a murder mystery and dodge death. When Sir Mason Green makes off the diamond casket, Gerald is left to wonder when the villain will show up again.

In book two of the Archer Legacy, THE EMERALD CASKET by Richard Newsome, Gerald learns of a family secret kept hidden for centuries. With the help of his friends, Sam and Ruby, they embark on a trip to India to find the hidden secrets. He will not only discover an underwater city, but also exactly who are his friends and who are foes.

Despite the heavy handed clues Gerald receives at the most convenient moments and the disappearance of the adults at the most inconvenient times, The Emerald Casket is a grand adventure with action that never seems to stop. It is easy to overlook the obvious set ups when the excitement builds with every page. Definitely a fun book I would gladly recommend for the action-adventure lover, reminiscent of Indiana Jones. Great for boys 8-12, but a book girls will love as well. The ending leaves a good set up for the final chapter of the Archer Legacy which I look forward to reading.
