Past and present weave together as a centuries-old Caribbean legend comes to life on the sun-drenched beaches of Curaçao.



In the first decade of the 16th century...

a crew of Spanish conversos – Jews forced to convert to Christianity to evade the Inquisition – sail to the New World with the Great Navigator, Christopher Columbus. Their discovery of Mayan gold leads to slaughter, piracy, betrayal and a tantalizing mystery that lies unresolved until...


Five hundred years later...

when a beautiful Afro-Irish archaeologist and a small-town New England cop cross paths on the Caribbean island of Curaçao. Following a centuries-old diary written by a fated cabin boy on Columbus' third voyage, they stay one step ahead of shadowy rivals to uncover the trail of a secret society, Nazi gold – and something bigger than either saw coming.


"Historic, mysterious, and humorous...a treasure of an adventure...a must read!"
