From the master of suspense and adventure, a tale of vanished silver bullion, a false-hearted sea captain and his brave crew.
The story of the Trikkala is a strange one.
Reported sunk in 1945, she sails into port one year later, barely afloat, her crew and valuable cargo missing. What happened during that year at sea? What secrets of betrayal and murderous greed were played out on the desolate islet of Maddon's Rock?
