A centuries-old Caribbean legend comes to life on the sun-drenched beaches of our island.
In the first decade of the 16th century, a crew of Spanish conversos - Jews forced to convert to Christianity to evade the Inquisition - sail to the New World with the Great Navigator, Christopher Columbus. Their discovery of Mayan gold leads to slaughter, piracy, betrayal and a tantalizing mystery that lies unresolved until...
Five hundred years later, when a beautiful Afro-Irish archaeologist and a small-town New England cop cross paths on the Caribbean island of Curaçao. Guided by a centuries-old diary penned by a cabin boy on Columbus' third voyage, they stay one step ahead of shadowy rivals to uncover the trail of a secret society, Nazi gold - and something bigger than either saw coming.
"Historic, mysterious, and humorous, this treasure of an adventure captured me on page one and hasn't released me yet. It's a story that transports the reader in both time and place with characters who linger long beyond the final pages. A must read."
