With the exception of the British frigate De Braak, sunk in a storm off the coast of Delaware in 1798, it was the biggest underwater treasure in the Western Hemisphere: ten million, two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in gold ingots, emeralds, and uncut diamonds, locked in the fuselage of a DC-3, lying half-buried on the ocean floor and guarded by the remains of two men, one woman and a very small boy.

The fortune was there for the taking, and ready to grab it were a blueblooded oilman with his own off-shore rig, a hood so cold and independent that even the Mafia couldn't do business with him and a psychopathic hired assassin.

Against them stood one man, and those were his people, those skeletons in their watery coffin.  His name was Talbot, and he would bury his dead - but only after he had avenged their murders.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.

See my goodreads icon goodreads page. I almost never do reviews, but I use this site to catalogue books.
See my librarything icon librarything page. I use this site to catalogue books and it has more details on books than goodreads does.
