The Mystery of the Graveyard of the Atlantic

You could say deadly Diamond Shoals was "Ground zero" for shipwrecks, once upon a time. In the era before lighthouses and before lifesavers, an enormous swatch of sneaky, shifting sandy shoals worked like skeletal fingers to snatch up ships and sink them! When Papa has to emergency land The Mystery Girl, this spooky, mysterious story begins.
