A classic novel of ruthless revenge set in the steel jungle of an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico ? and on the sea bed below it. Now reissued in a new cover style.
A sunken DC-3 lying on the Caribbean floor. Its cargo: ten million, two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in gold ingots, emeralds and uncut diamonds guarded by the remains of two men, one woman and a very small boy.
The fortune was there for the taking, and ready to grab it were a blue-blooded oilman with his own offshore rig, a gangster so cold and independent that even the Mafia couldn?t do business with him and a psychopathic hired assassin.
Against them stood one man, and those were his people, those skeletons in their watery coffin. His name was Talbot, and he would bury his dead ? but only after he had avenged their murders.
About the Author:
Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed. He died in 1987.
