A crime committed over 7 decades ago is discovered by Benny Markowitz, an eccentric, devious Russian researcher. A fortune is believed to lay on the seabed and Benny needs others to finance the recovery.
A respected businessman marked for execution at Christmas, his English Rose stepsister who wants to marry him, a psychopathic lesbian and her Ex-special forces minder and a brutal gangster invest in the hunt.
Finding the elusive treasure seems impossible, but desperation and greed drive them on to face death at every turn.
As the hunt unfolds, so does the mystery surrounding the fortune and the past lives of each of the characters. Friendship and loyalty are brittle as everyone is tested.
Who will win and walk away, with or without what they came for?
This is a Clive Cussler style adventure, but more intense.
Broadly speaking, the story is suitable for teens and much older.
The next adventure, City of the Sands, is being written now.
