'I was looking down, watching the shark come. It seemed to swell up in size as it rushed towards me. Every detail was burned into my mind in those frantic seconds. I saw the hog's snout with the two slotted nostrils, the golden eyes with the black pupils like arrowheads, the broad blue back from which stood the tall executioner's blade of the dorsal fin.'
Harry Fletcher, a man with a chequered past, has reformed and is making an honest living as a charter skipper fishing for big game in the seductive waters of the Indian Ocean. Suddenly men from the world of violence Harry has put behind him overturn his good intentions, involving him in a hectic race to recover a fabulous treasure from an ancient wreck.

Eye of tiger
A riveting treasure hunt
A good unput-down-able action adventure with lots of twists. Really enjoyed this book. If I were being critical, some parts were a little hard to believe e.g. The dolphins but only a minor point in a good story.
I admit I only got this as a free download but started reading it on a flight back from Rome and loved it. Totally gripping yet simply and plainly written. How this has never been made into a film I don't know.
