The Hoi An, a wreck deep beneath the waves of the South China Sea.
In her fifteenth-century hull a priceless treasure; on the waves above a team of treasure hunters racing against the clock to claim the fabulous cargo via dangerous saturation dives.
But typhoons, pirates, gunships, mutiny, rival treasure hunters, storms and greed were to make this deep-sea dive one of the most dramatic and gruelling expeditions ever undertaken.
Frank Pope was there and his gripping tale of this high-stakes folly will captivate anyone who loves undersea adventure.
