It seems to be just another adventure cruise - in truth a dull affair plagued by complaining passengers and cramped quarters. But this is to be a very different cruise from all the others. The tension heightens as the ship changes its course to follow a map - Bannister's chart - in search of long-lost cargoes of gold.

Antony Trew spent many years at sea. During the 1939-45 war he served with the Mediterranean Fleet in the 22nd Anti-Submarine Group and in the Western Approaches where he commanded the destroyer Walker. He was awarded the DSC and died in 1996. In this novel Antony weaves a plot of peculiar richness and excitement. This is a sea-story not merely with a difference, but with many differences.
