"...think Clive Cussler turning Raiders of the Lost Ark into a shoot-’em-up.” - Foreword Clarion Reviews
A marine archaeologist standing up for herself. A psychopath with mother issues. A hitman who hates failure. A soldier with a point to prove. A policeman out on a limb. And a treasure that tests every allegiance.
Brett Rivera might not know exactly what’s going on, or who she can trust, but she’s in the race of her life and she knows she’s not going to give up; after three years of searching she has found the wreck of the Drachen. It goes downhill from there: first the hold is empty, and then she’s attacked, and then she’s almost killed.
Why is a mother-obsessed psychopath spending so much money to catch her? Who is the British soldier really? How is the hazy amber globe and the rusted keys she recovered supposed to help her locate the Hanseatic League’s greatest lost treasure?
Brett doesn’t know, but she has two things in her favour: Patrick, her best friend, and an ancient book which just might be the missing piece. She is pursued in Finland, double-crossed in Tallinn, abducted in Lübeck, shot at in Bremen, and she’s not taking it lying down.
A shipwreck. A lost treasure. A hell of a race from one to the other.
