The year was 1715—A Treasure Fleet comprised of eleven Spanish ships and one French vessel was blown onto the reefs off of the east-central coast of Florida by a massive hurricane. Eleven of the twelve vessels were dismasted, broken like kindling and sent to the seafloor in less than twenty feet of water. Fast-forward to 1973, Captain Henderson and his mate, Butch Dawson, while on a dreadful nighttime run to the reef, inadvertently locate some well-preserved ribs of a sixteenth century vessel off the coast of Cape Canaveral. Between those heavy wooden beams lay a kings fortune. The trouble for Henderson and Dawson began immediately and the treasure recovery had to wait—for forty-five more years. Leap ahead to current day, Josh Baker, Giselle O’Connor and Eddie Debord are rolling south in Eddies fully restored VW Bus. After repairing a small issue with an accelerator cable, they met a young man with a story—a story from 1973. A tale of treasure made credible by his possession of a single gold Spanish Escudo left for him by his grandfather. The action begins and never stops in this fast-paced land and sea treasure hunt adventure. The friends are relentlessly pursued by a couple of blundering criminals as well as the Casino controlling, Florida Mafia, who wants a piece of their action as well. Josh, Eddie and their new friends can seemingly never catch a break as they try to help locate and recover the lost cargo they have signed rights to excavate…but as always, it seems others don’t play by the rules!
