Mystery of the Caribbean Pearls, by Andy Adams (1859 - 1935)
The Mystery of the Caribbean Pearls is a Biff Brewster story full of adventure and intrigue. Biff Brewster meets up by accident with Derek, after being called to the Caribbean by his Uncle Charlie. They go on to search for valuable pearls in Martinique which have been discovered by Derek's father, who is also now missing. Their adventures take them to other places in the Caribbean, and they have to avoid and deal with the evil man Dietz and his sidekicks, and also brave the dangerous waters containing sharks and other nasty things at the bottom of the sea.

Hi Peter,
I will MC this for you. I PM'd you instructions on accessing and using the MW in case you haven't used it before.
Cheers!

Hi Peter,

I'll DPL this one for you, if you'd like.

I enjoyed DPLing another of your recordings from this series, Hawaiian Sea Hunt Mystery about 4 years ago. :thumbs:

Great, thanks both to Amy and you. I am very pleased to have such a great team behind me. I'm sure it will all come back to me, after not doing a solo book for quite a while.

Best wishes

Peter

Hi Peter,
Everything looks good in the MW. The link is the location of the file. You don't have to update that field. It updates when you put the file in the Listen URL spot.
Happy Saturday!

Hi Peter,

I'll get to PL these today and tomorrow.

If I may be so bold as to offer a suggestion. The Chapter numbers appear to line up with the Section numbers. If you were to put instead the Chapter title into the Title column of the MW, then upon cataloguing, you'd have a ready-made Table of Contents for both LibriVox and The Internet Archive.

For example, see an earlier project we did ...

... in LV:
https://librivox.org/hawaiian-sea-hunt-mystery-by-andy-adams/

... and in TIA:
https://archive.org/details/hawaiianseahunt_1708_librivox

What to you think? Just slap me down if I'm out-of-line. :)

FWIW,
