Product Description

Review

It began innocently enough ... in 1795 three boys discovered the top of an acient shaft on uninhabited Oak Island in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. The boys began to dig, and what they uncovered started the world's greatest and stangest treasure hunt. Two hundred years of courage, back-breaking effort, ingenuity, and engineering skills have so far failed to retrieve what is concealed there.

The Oak Island curse prophesies that the treasure will not be found until seven men are dead and the last oak has fallen. That last oak has already gone - and over the years, six treasure hunters have been killed. What can the treasure be?

Theories include Drake's plate and jewels, Captain Kidd's bloodstained pirate gold, an army payroll left there for safety by the French or British military engineers, priceless ancient manuscripts, the body of an Arif or other religious refugee leader, the lost treasure of the Templars, and part of the ancient, semi-legendary Acadian Treasure linked to the mystery of Glozel and Rennes-le-Chateau in France.

After years of research the authors have finally solved the sinister riddle of Oak Island, but their answer is challenging, controversial and disturbing. Something beyond price still lies waiting in the labrinth.

I read, with much astonishment, the review posted by a reader from Calmest, SC on the Oak Island Mystery by Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe. I have come to the conclusion that we must have read different book!
As a student of the para-normal and things Mysterious, I have always found the works of Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe essential, and fascination reading.
Their books are well researched, and written with a clarity, and just a touch of humour , which makes reading their work such a pleasure.
The Oak Island Mystery is no exception in my humble opinion. This book is not a waste of money for anyone who wants the facts and conclusions presented by a noted, and notable authority on the Mysteries of life, which Lionel Fanthorpe undoubtedly is. Nor is it a waste of money for anyone who just wants a thundering good read!

I am not a follower of the Oak Island mystery, just someone who read an interesting article in Rolling Stone about the mystery and then went in search of more detail. This book is badly written, confusing and overly presumptive. Do not buy!

After reading the latest book regarding the Oak Island Mystery, I found it a facinating read. Especially regarding the possibilities of the Knights Templar being involved. (This book came out long BEFORE the Stephen Sora book on the same subject) I'd highly recommend this title to anyone who seeks further answers/hypothosis pertainting to the mysterious Oak Island Money Pit story. I commend the authors for their marvelous insights and research on this puzzle of the century. This book is a must for any serious researcher. Let the uninitiated beware. I give this book a hearty 2 THUMBS UP!

I find it strange that anonymous from Clemson could not understand Lionels writing,(maybe that is why they failed to put a name against the review)another mystery perhaps?.. I find all his books very interesting and thought provoking. More power to your pen Lionel as we all love your writings.
