Jake is fascinated by an antique watch in Bill’s jewellery collection. The watch was given to Bill’s great-grandfather by George Burt, “The King of Swanage,” and Bill explains the legend of the Swanage Gold. Bill’s watch is said to be made from the Swanage Gold, but the rest of the gold is missing. Bill and Winn’s granddaughter, Becky, helps Jake to discover a code engraved in the watch, giving them clues and leading them on what becomes an adventure of a lifetime. However, there is danger lurking, in the form of a criminal mastermind gang, watching Jake and Becky’s every move.
It will take courage, strength, skill and luck to unravel this incredible mystery. But have Jake and Becky got what it takes to find the missing Swanage Gold?

    Amazon Reader Review – This is a superbly written, action-packed, adventure story, not only suitable for children but adults too! It reminded me of my childhood days when the holidays were long and we played out, before the times of mobile phones and digital games – a time when we enjoyed having fun and being outdoors. I don’t want to give the story away but 12 year old Jake and his friend Becky get involved on a mystery hunt for the missing gold, a legend that spans back many years. Their adventure is gripping, especially when a mastermind criminal gang are on their trail. It really is a great story that will have you turning the pages and wanting to know what happens next. A 5 star book, without doubt! Well done to the author for writing such as a lovely story that’s easy to follow and totally spellbinding!
