Isolated. Beautiful. Rugged. Serene. For many the thought of Alaska conjures up images of snow, ice, and the better cold, but this beautiful wilderness dubbed the Last Frontier is so much more. Lofty snow-capped mountains lined with conifers, lakes fringed by majestic glaciers, the dramatic show of the northern lights and other scenic vistas transform Alaska into a picturesque paradise. However, on a 10-day cruise through the spectacular Inside Passage, twelve-year old Sylvia and Albert Barrington find a mystery they have always been dreaming to solve. The precious AQUAGEM is stolen from onstage during a show in the cruise theatre, with almost all the passengers as witnesses.From strange CCTV footage to replicas of the AQUAGEM being sold as souvenirs, the two children must investigate each and every clue they have. With an ever-increasing suspect list, they must piece together this seemingly impossible theft before the thief smuggles the jewel off the ship. With stake-outs at various ports of call and exhilarating chases across the alpine landscape, this is surely a trip they will never forget.The clock is ticking and time is running out for them...This book also includes a short collection of poems.
