When rugged young marine engineer, Ryan O'Donnell discovers ancient papers passed down in his family that hint at a chance to fulfill a boyhood dream, he gathers a motley crew that includes the beautiful Jamestown tavern owner, Amanda Youst, and sets sail. The search for the 'Scurrilous', a 17th century treasure laden Man-O-War captained by the privateer John O'Donnell, is met with both manmade and natural dangers that test the mettle of the crew and forges bonds of blood. Hurricanes and unscrupulous salvers cannot squelch their determination or tenacity as they seek a king's treasure in the straights of Florida. Ryan O'Donnell must captain his crew to a four hundred year old secret that may mean unimaginable riches or a grave reserved for him by the lost crew of the 'Scurrilous'.

About the Author
From my many years of being on the waters of the Everglades I have gained a deep and sincere appreciation for the environment and the lore of the old Caribbean. Treasure from the Spanish Main is literally a few miles from my doorstep. It is for this love of the sea and writing that I assembled this book.
I studied creative writing while I attended Florida State University and it has always been a passion of mine. A professor of mine once told me to read, it doesn't matter what you read, because all knowledge is good exercise for your mind.
It is my sincerest hope that you enjoy this little adventure of mine. It may be simple but a lot of me went into it.
