Coy is a suspended sailor without a ship. At an auction in Barcelona, he meets a beautiful woman obsessed with the Dei Gloria , a Jesuit ship sunk by pirates in the seventeenth century. Tánger uses her considerable skills with men and her expertise with atlases and nautical maps to search for the ship's rumored lost treasure. Coy is quickly drawn into the search, and finds himself falling in love as they seek their fortune together. Or do they?
Their journey becomes dangerous. Does the treasure really exist? Are there secrets dwelling in the depths of the sea? And what of the depths of the heart? This suspensefully plotted novel combines the richness of atmosphere we have come to expect from Arturo Pérez-Reverte with the addictive romance and mystery of the sea. A riveting read, it is an unforgettable adventure.

I struggled to get through this book and ultimately maxed out my renewal ability without completing. I think The Club Dumas (by same author) was much more involving to the reader and had a better cadence.
