About this title

Synopsis:

A billion in gold. Two expert divers. One deadly mission. "Great news for those who like tense, complex thrillers. . . . Judging by this well-constructed and thoroughly enjoyable debut, Robert Louis Stevenson has inherited some of his namesake's storytelling gift".--"Publishers Weekly".

Review:

With a double dose of literary heritage--he claims both the author of Treasure Island and poet Hart Crane as ancestors--Robert Louis Stevenson III would seem to have been born to be a writer. But this particular Stevenson first found fame as a scuba diver specializing in exploring sunken wrecks such as the Andrea Doria, and it's this side of his brain that makes Torchlight so fascinating. Every technical detail of his story about two former Navy SEAL divers who get involved in a scheme to loot a billion dollars in gold from a sunken World War I warship rings true, and Stevenson has inherited enough writing skill to make his characters come alive.
