A fortune in stolen British gold lies shipwrecked at the bottom of the Irish Sea. And history's deadliest treasure hunt is on. Irish militant Michael Ryan wants to finance war in his homeland--and a sinister pact with the New York Mafia will make his dreams a savage reality. Former IRA enforcer Sean Dillon now works for the British government. His mission: retrieve the gold by any means necessary--and finish Ryan's bloody plot before it gets off the ground. Two deadly men are locked in a furious race, with millions of dollars--and lives--hanging in the balance... A wonderful story-line that Jack Higgins weaves, a great action-packed story, featuring not only Sean Dillion, but also Liam Devlin, another of his great Irish characters. I had not read a Jack Higgins adventure in many decades and was not disappointed with my return. Plan to reread many more.
