IN 1695, a notorious English pirate buried his bounty in a maze of booby-trapped tunnels on an island off the coast of Maine. In three hundred years, no one has breached this cursed and rocky fortress. Now a treasure hunter and his high-tech, million-dollar recovery team embark on the perfect operation to unlock the labyrinth's mysteries. First the computers fail. The then crewmen begin to die. The island has guarded its secrets for centuries, and it isn't letting them go--without a fight.


  • A bit tedious

    By Jenatolla007
    Not their best effort. The mystery was not really a mystery and the lengthy, boring descriptions of an ocean storm and the cavern itself both read like homages to boating and spelunking. Also, didn't make sense (spoiler alert) THAT much radiation and it didn't kill every living thing in the ocean for hundreds of miles? Not to mention the years and years of fallout that not a single character worried about. Just dumb.
  • Strong but slow

    I've read about 10 books from the authors that have truly caught my attention from the first pages. This one is a bit slow at the beginning but then quickly catches up. A must read for hardcore fans.
