The Criminal in the Caymans by Connie L. Berry
Brothers Max and Sam have just found out that they will be spending spring break in the Cayman Islands, thanks to their dad's work trip. Before they leave, two mysterious packages arrive. One, an old map with Max and Sam's names written on it, and the other, an old leather journal. Inside the journal is written this quote, " May good fortune be with you." The boys are puzzled by this. As they arrive in the Cayman Islands, Max and Sam forget about the strange gifts. The brothers enjoy the beach, but soon, their detective skills are put to the test. A man with a parrot tattoo, the FBI, and their dad's secret job, add to the suspense. What will Max and Sam discover? Read this story to find out. This is the first book in "The Incredible Journey, " series. With easy to read text, short chapters, and cool black and white illustrations, this will be sure to attract reluctant readers, as well as those who like a good mystery. Facts of the Cayman Islands are included, along with instructions to  investigate the Incredible Journey  website. Ufortunately, the website is no longer available. However, readers in grades 2-4 will enjoy this series.
