Last summer, Nick Caden became an Internet celebrity for almost a whole day when he discovered Billy the Kid’s killer in the “living” ghost town of Deadwood. (Not the real Billy the Kid — he’s been dead for years.) When the owner of the Cool Ghoul Gazette learns of Nick’s super sleuthing skills, he hires Nick to investigate the death of a vampire. In Transylvania, North Carolina, Nick finds a corpse with fangs, bite marks and a stake driven through its heart.

But once he begins to peel back the clues surrounding the murder, Nick finds his new job is not only dangerous but could suck the life out of him.

No Good Stede Goes Unpunished By Eddie Jones – 2021 Selah Finalist for YA Literature

Books for Boys Who Like to Read

Would you risk your life to go back in time to the golden age of piracy?


No Good Stede Goes Unpunished - AudiobookAt the conclusion of a seminar on, “Trances and Visions: Exploring the Out-of-Body Experience,” the wealthy daughter of a prominent physician approaches Ricky with an offer. “If my father could fix things so your mother would receive the best cancer treatment for free, would you go back in time to clear my ancestor’s good name?”

Ricky explains that he can’t simply will himself to have an episode and take a time-travel trip.

“Absence seizures don’t work that way. Even if I could go back, I can’t control when and where I end up.”

But Ricky also knows there have been instances where someone claimed they slipped into a trance and saw past and future events.

  • John, the Apostle of Christ.
  • Saul/Paul, also an Apostle of Christ.
  • Joseph Smith, founder of the Latter-day Saints.
  • Black American slave Nat Turner who led the only effective, sustained slave rebellion.

“They saw things,” Ricky says to the rich girl, “but didn’t change what happened in the past.”

Then, for the third time since last Christmas, Ricky experiences a short period of “blanking out” — of staring into and sailing through space and time.

Moments later Ricky finds himself in pirate land with Stede Bonnet, a rich sugar plantation owner who thought becoming a pirate might be a fun way to live out the rest of his life. And for Bonnet it was a Yabba Dabba Doo good time right up until the moment Ricky stepped aboard the Revenge.

Set sail from Barbados with Bonnet’s crew as they slant west towards the North American coast, and run afoul of the British Royal Navy, the good citizens of Charleston, and the pirate Blackbeard.

Will Ricky swing by the neck or die on the deck?

Would you risk your life to go back in time in order to save your mother?
