Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure

Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure
by B. K. Bostick

256 pages
Published October 28, 2011

This is a pre-release review. Thanks to Net Galley and the publisher, Bonneville Books, for the chance to read it early in exchange for an honest review.

When his grandfather dies, Huber Hill is devastated---until he opens Grandpa Nick's mysterious box. An old gold coin and directions to a hidden Spanish treasure send him and his friends off on an mind-blowing adventure, but he's not the only one on the hunt. Filled with dangerous animals and cryptic puzzles, this book will have you on the edge of your seat until the last page.


This was a really fun book. Compelling characters, check. Treasure map, check. Fantastic bad guy, check. Mortal peril, check. Riddles to solve in order to follow map and reach treasure, check. Surprises throughout, check.

I loved this kind of book as a kid, and as a grown-up kid, I still love them. It's a great adventure full of twists and excitement. Who wouldn't want to find a treasure in the mountains near their home?

5/5 stars
