Pavilion Key:
Isle of Buried Treasure

Pavilion Key continues the saga of Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission Officer Hal Noble, who once again finds himself pitted against corrupt individuals---their greedy plans could seriously affect one of the most endangered reptiles on earth, the Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. This time the story takes Hal to Pavilion Key which lies at the leading edge of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands. This island was a favorite stop for Caribbean pirates in the 17th and 18th centuries---but gold doubloons and precious stones aren’t the only treasures buried in its sands. Pavilion Key, like Greg Lewbart’s first novel, Ivory Hunters, weaves sharply drawn characters with classic mystery plots while touching on such important and timely topics as natural history, ecology, and conservation. Mystery lovers, nature buffs and discerning readers of all types will enjoy Lewbart’s entertaining and educational adventures.
