Updated with information on the results of recent high-tech underwater scans, Oak Island Secrets offers a complete and up-to-date account of Canada's most puzzling and intriguing historical and archaeological mystery.
Since 1795, treasure hunters have pursued something they believe to be of immense value buried more than a hundred feet below the surface of Nova Scotia's Oak Island. Explorations and excavations have revealed an elaborately constructed system of shafts and water traps, underlining the amazing engineering skill apparently employed to protect the treasure.

Mark Finnan interviewed all the key participants in the current search for the buried treasure, uncovering information that points to new directions and approaches that might finally reveal Oak Island's secrets.

"If you have any taste for great literary intrigue -- and it's difficult to imagine any greater -- Oak Island Secrets will quickly pull you into the pit."

- Peter Simpson Telegraph-Journal

"Try Formac Publishing's recent Oak Island Secrets by Mark finnan, and you'll not be disappointed... Mark Finnan has done a good job of presenting the story to date."

- Elizabeth Cran Guardian-Patriot

"Finnan's accomplishment has been to chronicle the enigma with an historian's breadth of vision, a journalist's dogged persistence and a native Dubliner's love of a good yarn."

- Cam Christie Cobourg Daily Star

"The best thing about the Oak Island treasure is that it has never been recovered, which gives treasure-hunters much room to dream...Finnan's book, in providing an up-to-date overview of all available information, aids these dreams."

- Daily News

"...a more comprehensive examination of a theory whose more summery treatment in other works does not convey the same plausibility."

- Jane M. Wilson Canadian Book Review Annual

"Oak Island Secrets is clearly the most up-to-date book available on the mystery."

- Steve Proctor Chronicle Herald
