Old Salazar held the pearl to the light and turned it around and around. He gave it to his son, who had found the pearl in the underwater cave of the lagoon.
"You have in your hand the Pearl of the Universe, the Paragon of Pearls, the Great Pearl of Heaven!" he said.
When the pearl merchants wouldn't meet his price, Blas Salazar presented the fabulous gem to the Madonna of the church of La Paz. "The House of Salazar shall be favored in heaven, now and forever," he proudly proclaimed and firmly believed.
But there were others who believed a curse had surely been brought down upon Salazar and Son and their fleet, for the Manat Diablo, monster devilfish, would reclaim his treasure.
And it was young Ramon who would have to undo the evil he had begun.From the Inside Flap:
Ramon cannot believe what he has just found in an oyster he's brought up from an underwater cave where the Manta Diable, the monster devilfish, lurks. Ramon is holding a pearl. Not just any pearl, but the most fabulous gem he or anyone else has ever seen. But neither sixteen-year-old Ramon nor his father can forsee the trouble that such a pearl can bring. It will be young Ramon who must stop the monster he has unleased.
