Synopsis

An engrossing tale of danger, adventure and ambition....

It was to be the deepest marine excavation ever attempted. The stakes were high: The Hoi An wreck lay hundreds of feet down in a typhoon-prone stretch of water off the coast of Vietnam known as the Dragon Sea. In her hold, a unique and potentially priceless horde.

To bring it to the surface required a grizzled, battle-scarred collection of treasure hunters, rig divers and ex-special forces, saturation diving, a crew of 160, and a fleet of boats. The costs would be unprecedented, but the potential rewards were equally high: Mensun Bound - an Oxford archaeologist dubbed the Indiana Jones of the Deep - would discover the answers to an age-old historical mystery.

Hired as the project's archaeological manager, Frank Pope recreates the unfolding drama of this audacious expedition in this riveting real-life thriller.
