In the waning days of World War I, an American cruiser carrying a billion dollars in gold was sunk off the coast of Rhode Island. Not a trace of the ship was ever found---until now. Erich Gerhardt, arms supplier to the world, has discovered the cruiser's location. The treasure could help him finance a nuclear weapons deal between Saddam Hussein and several members of the Russian military.
The sunken warship lies beyond the reach of all but the world's most accomplished divers. The only men capable of recovering the gold are Jack Henderson and Philip Drake. With every dive they risk their lives. Each time they surface, the risk is even greater---for they have become pawns in a deadly game between two of the most powerful and dangerous organizations in the world.
