Ridley Pearson was born in Glen Cove, New York on March 13, 1953. He was raised in Connecticut and attended Kansas University and Brown University. In the early 1970's, Pearson was a musician and songwriter for a rock band, eventually writing more than 300 songs and the score for an award-winning documentary. He is still musically active, playing bass for the "literary garage band", Rock Bottom Remainders. Having honed his craft writing scripts for television shows such as Columbo and Quincy, he turned to writing and published his first novel, Never Look Back, in 1985. Pearson received the Raymond Chandler Fulbright Fellowship at Oxford University in 1991 and has since published a number of novels, including The Angel Maker, No Witnesses and Beyond Recognition. These works are characterized by an attention to technical detail and forensic accuracy. He has also published many children's books, including The Kingdom Keepers series and a series of prequels to Peter Pan written with Dave Barry.
When an earthquake strikes Never Land Island, things begin to go terribly wrong. A mysterious barrel washes ashore and falls into the hands of Captain Hook, who hatches an evil plan.
The once-peaceful mermaids, who have always been friends to the natives, have turned violent. When the mermaids injure some members of the Mollusk tribe, the warriors have no choice but to fight back.
Meanwhile, the boys and Shining Pearl and Little Scallop set off on a secret mission to try to make peace with the mermaids. Instead, they’re captured, and while in captivity they discover the cause of the problem – Blood Tide is poisoning the lagoon and will eventually kill the mermaids.
With time running out, the children must figure out a way to save the mermaids and to stop Captain Hook, whose plan threatens to destroy the Mollusk village and change life on Never Land Island forever.
