Buried treasure tale.

This is the first Perez-Reverte book I read and still my favorite. For comparison, I also bought the South American Spanish edition. That has more descriptive detail. This good translation does not suffer for being shorter. The translator captured the beautiful mood and language. Brings back lovely memories of Madrid. Barcelona in the book is nicer than the Barcelona I remember.

An intellectual thriller of Coy who meets a mysterious woman at an auction. Together they hunt for 17the Century boat, which might have existed and might have gone down with a treasure on board.

Perez-Reverte is one of my favorite authors, and this is not one of the best of his novels, but then, it isn't too bad either. While engaging and colorful, with some good characters (the dwarf Argentine commando is particularly well-drawn), it tries too overtly to be too many things, mostly hard-boiled adventure stories and films; hard guys and delicious dames in deadly search of fabulous treasure: The Maltese Falcon, The Deep, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Beat the Devil, The Odyssey, TinTin's Adventures, The Da Vinci Code ... Great stuff that Perez-Reverte chops, dices, and sautes into a pretty good bouillabaisse of a sea-story.

Author Arturo Perez Reverte does it again with a stunning book on adventure, pirates, secret maps, and an intelligent plot.
