A 300-year-old legend. Fathoms below. And the search might kill them all.
He’d lost everything. Now, first mate Jed labors away on the sea-torn Gypsea Moon—short of cash and stuck in the eastern Atlantic. But when he and his crew haul up valuable pieces from a forgotten treasure, he sees a chance to get it all back.
A mysterious adventure from the Caribbean to the Cape unfolds—where peculiar relics abandoned centuries ago may provide the only link to an astonishing, unfinished tale. A disturbing slice of new-world history plagued of catastrophe, wrought with death, and wrapped in immense fortune.
But someone is lurking around the docks. Someone vicious. Will Jed and his hardworking shipmates decipher the puzzling clues in time? Or, will a greedy psychopath throw them one by one into a watery grave?
Inspired by true events. A captivating and original cast portrayed in a witty and fast-paced style. Lions in the Water weaves a smart blend of historical accounts with curious figures. Wicked and cut-throat, with a thrilling climax that will have readers clinging to the rail.
