Summary

The heart-warming conclusion to the beloved Mo & Dale Mysteries by Newbery Honor author Sheila Turnage featuring the most shocking case yet!

Pirate fever sweeps through the town after an opportunistic treasure hunter shows up looking to lay claim to Blackbeard's lost gold buried somewhere in Tupelo Landing. When the (probably) world-famous Desperado Detectives - Mo and Dale and Harm - are hired by Mayor Little's mother to find the pirate loot for her, and the high-stakes race for riches is on!

But that's not the only treasure hunt in town. Mo LoBeau unearths shocking new clues that may lead to her long-lost Upstream Mother - in the riskiest, scariest, and possibly richest case of her life. 

Will Mo find her Upstream Mother? Can the Desperados sidestep Blackbeard's curse and outsmart a professional treasure hunter? Will Dale faint under the pressure of Valentine's Day?

Could the stakes be any higher? Yes. With twin treasures hanging in the balance, Mo, Dale, and Harm realize one of them may have to leave Tupelo Landing. For good.

Listeners can come to this new Mo & Dale Mystery right after Three Times Lucky if they like. And don't miss the rest of the Mo & Dale Mysteries!

Critic reviews

 A SIBA "Okra Pick" for Best Southern-Flavored Literature

"[A] lively cast rich with heartfelt emotion...wit propels this fast-paced treasure-hunt tale into a pitch-perfect delight...if [readers] can get through the end without welling up, they're tougher than most - it's absolutely worth the wait." (Kirkus, starred review)

“Turnage’s fine-tuned talent for storytelling is as evident as her understated, irrepressible humor and her creative ability to turn a phrase.... The large, intergenerational cast of idiosyncratic characters enriches this first-person narrative at every turn. Amusing, dramatic, and tender.” (Booklist, starred review)

“Every volume a standout, the Mo and Dale Mysteries series ends on as high a note - just as it began. Turnage delivers, once again, a fast-paced adventure with a cast of characters who are as real as they are quirky and laugh-out-loud dialog.... Readers of character-driven novels filled with humor will be thrilled by this smart and sweet series, start to finish.” (VOYA, starred review)

Fantastic to listen to on long trips with the kids! The plot keeps them interested and Mo's antics tickle the funny bone.

Another great Mo & Dale book!

I love this book series. Each book can stand on its own but builds so well on previous books. I love the characters, the town, the story line and the narration is fabulous! I really hope there will be more books in this series!

Perfect finale to a great series!

You'll laugh out loud and cry even if you aren't normally a crier.. Characters are so well developed you'll think they're real. The dialogue is witty and fresh. Voice acting is superb for all the characters!

Best One so far!!

Ms Turnage is a great storyteller. I really got involved in the treasure hunt and especially, Mo's quest to find her mother. I drive a lot in my work, so having stories to get engrossed in really helps. The narrator is excellent in her ability to distinguish the different characters. Thank you both.
