Tiernay, an eleven-year-old aspiring sleuth, is fast on the trail of Revolutionary War gold that is rumored to be buried in her town, but running for her life, scaling cliffs in the middle of the night, and getting trapped underground is definitely not part of her plan.

Janni Lee Simner is the author of the Phantom Rider series. She not only writes for children, but for adults, magazines, and businesses. She also designs websites. She loves the big skies of her hometown Tucson and the wilderness in her own back yard that is just right for adventuring.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6–Elementary school student Tiernay West is a wonderfully eccentric character who is determined to find buried treasure, become a true adventurer, and right past wrongs. She knows that other kids think she's weird but she is confident that she is on the right track to becoming a world-renowned explorer. She is not adept socially but becomes friends with Kevin, the son of her mother's boyfriend, and they spy on a bully to try to find the Revolutionary War sword that was stolen from a local antique shop. Easily able to justify anything so long as it aids an investigation, Tiernay and Kevin are placed in real peril when she spies on nasty Daryll Jensen. Excerpts of Tiernay's internal monologue start many chapters. One cannot help but laugh at the melodrama inherent in the protagonist's determined personality. Tiernay is an irrepressible role model in her unwavering self-confidence, intellectual curiosity, and sense of humor. Like the waiter who remembers she likes her soda with lime, cherries, and lemon wedges, readers will not forget Tiernay West anytime soon.–B. Allison Gray, John Jermain Library, Sag Harbor, NY
