This is another great, unique novella by Henkel, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I absolutely adored the references to Sherlock Holmes, Watson, H.G Wells, and Jules Verne! Though Watson was referenced before in Theater of Vampires, I somehow overlooked the connection between him and Holmes, and feel a little sheepish about it, but that aside, it is blatantly obvious in this story that Henkel is combining characters across history to spur his novella on, and it¿s fantastic! I now know who Herbert really is from Dr. Prometheus and watching Waston interact with Jason Dark was extremely interesting! Though a brief sighting of Holmes resides within the pages of this novella, I am truly hoping that we will meet him in the flesh as the series continues. But, Holmes and references to other literary characters aside, this novel is amazing. There were many different things going on and I love that Jason Dark and Siu Lin are again outside London solving a paranormal mystery.

In 1739 a sale ship runs aground in a storm off the coast of Britain and sinks, depositing it's cargo of gold coins on the sea floor. A century later, the ghosts of the dead mariners unleash a wave a terror on a seaside village. It's a case Jason Dark and his sidekick, Siu Lin, can't resist. A quick read, this is an action-packed blend of history and adventure rolled into one. This Jason Dark story features less horror than previous volumes, but the intrigue is ramped up. Highly recommended.
