Thirteen-year-old Abby Kendall and her family have been living with her Uncle Samuel on his ranch in Hawaii for three months now, but things there are not how her parents expected. During her uncle's long illness, the ranch was not productive, and neither he nor her parents have much money. Now a mean neighbor is threatening to buy the ranch, and Abby's parents and uncle don't have enough money to stop him. So Abby decides to use the pirate map she found on her last adventure, and find the treasure to solve her family's problems. She convinces her best friend Luke to come along, and soon the two friends are caught in another dangerous adventure as they sail to Lanai, a small Hawaiian Island that is supposed to be deserted and is rumored to be haunted. On Lanai, they run into trouble as they try to find the treasure, and encounter hostile natives, as well as their old enemy Jackal who wants his pirate treasure map back.
