9780141029214: Dragon Sea: A Historical Mystery, Buried Treasure, an Adventure Beneath the Waves

The Hoi An, a wreck deep beneath the waves of the South China Sea. In her fifteenth-century hull a priceless treasure; on the waves above a team of treasure hunters racing against the clock to claim the fabulous cargo via dangerous saturation dives. But typhoons, pirates, gunships, mutiny, rival treasure hunters, storms and greed were to make this deep-sea dive one of the most dramatic and gruelling expeditions ever undertaken. Frank Pope was there and his gripping tale of this high-stakes folly will captivate anyone who loves undersea adventure.

Review:

PRAISE FOR"DRAGON SEA" "Treasure and typhoons, conflict and greed, plus a cast of intriguing characters and a weighty issue at its heart--Frank Pope's tale has all the ingredients of a classic thriller. But it's all true. A stunning debut."--Nicholas Evans, author of"The Horse Whisperer""It takes a writer of extraordinary talent to tell a story like the one we find in "Dragon Sea, " but Frank Pope is one. This masterful recreation of the salvaging of the Hoi An hoard is as exciting as it is suspenseful--a thoughtful and gripping true thriller."--Clive Cussler
