'This remarkable first novel set in the present tells of a TV expedition to find and film the General Grant, and its aftermath when one of the TV crew, almost as if possessed by the spirit of James Teer, forms his own idea about where the gold is located and sets out to recover it in company with a beautiful part-Maori girl and a shady South American financier.
From this point on the narrative quickens pace - intrigue, mysterious deaths, refugees, pirates and above all the sea itself takes over.  And the story culminates in one of the most graphic descriptions of a storm at sea since Conrad's Typhoon.'
