User Summary: While on vacation in Antigua you hear the story of the ghost of English Harbor and get dared to look for it in a cemetery.
Demian's Thoughts: While some of the paths through this book are short and unsatisfying, it does have some deeper plot threads which bring it well above average for the series. There's also a jab at Christopher Columbus which I found fairly amusing.
