Treasure Hunters



The long barrel of a skeletal gun coughed streams of fire into the night. In a few moments the deck of the fishing boat burst into flame.

Pat has joined his father on an old boat off the coast of a troubled Indonesian island to search for treasure. But as they follow a trail of clues to the world's richest shipwreck the violence on the island coils around them.

In this powerful, action-packed thriller, master storyteller Allan Baillie takes us on a quest where the dangers are real and the cost of a mistake could be life.
