Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer

About the Book

Originally published as Secret of the Three Treasures.

If there's lost treasure to be found, she's the one to find it. Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer—at your service.

Moving with the stealth of a great cat of the African plains, Tiernay West can track a bicycle over dry pavement and infiltrate secret organizations far beyond bedtime. She has little use for playing by the rules, doing as she's told, or spending time with her mother's dull new boyfriend and his computer-obsessed son.

Tiernay may be months away from (elementary school) graduation, but she already knows what she wants out of life: to become a professional adventurer, just like the heroine of her father's best-selling novels. She isn't scared of anything, and when she catches wind of possible buried treasure in her own hometown, she's on the job. She knows this could be her big break.

If along the way Tiernay finds herself running for her life, scaling cliffs in the middle of the night, and evading her not-at-all-adventuresome mother, that's all in a day's work—and totally part of the plan.
