"In 1642, the galleon Santa Maria Magdalena, flagship of the Spanish silver fleet, set sail from the Americas to Seville loaded with a trove of gold, silver, and an unidentified Gobernadora Carga. It never reached Spain. Caught in a hurricane, the Magdalena sank off the southern Florida coast, its vast treasure lost in the depths of the sea." "Now, more than three hundred years later, the treasure has become Nick Gallagher's obsession. But one night when Nick is sleeping on one of Doubloon, Inc.'s boats, it sinks. His last thoughts before water fills his lungs are of the treasure - the mother lode he is sure is within his grasp.". "Enter Nick's estranged son, Jack, a recently retired navy fighter pilot. After his father's funeral, Jack suspects that his father may have been murdered. With a pivotal inherited stake in Doubloon, Jack teams up with his father's second wife, his half-brother, and Doubloon partners to begin his search for the truth the only way he knows how - to pick up the quest where his father left off."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

Holding the coin between his forefinger and thumb, he turned it so that the light reflected from it. This was my father’s obsession, he thought, the thing that uprooted him, yanked him away from his wife… finally cost him his life. Here’s the dream – treasure. Pulling his eyes from the coin, which seemed to him as though it were in mint condition, he asked, “A piece of eight?”
“A doubloon, Jack,” she answered, her voice low. “Nick only found three of ‘em, but he was betting there are thousands more.”

The rift between Nick and Jack Gallagher started twenty years ago. Jack felt that any man who left his young son and wife to go off treasure hunting in the Keys wasn’t worth knowing. But when Nick dies in a boating accident, Jack finds that he’s inherited a huge mess. Nick had been closing in on the final resting place of the Santa Maria Magdalena but the funds and the salvage licenses are close to expiring. Jack doesn’t exactly like working with his half-brother, his father’s second wife and their loyal rag-tag crew, but they seem less threatening than his father’s bitter ex-partner and his new backers. There’s a beautiful journalist who seems to honestly like Jack but it’s difficult for him to know who to trust. And then there’s Brenda, the hurricane hovering over the waters where the Magdalena rests. Perhaps the gold is cursed after all.

I grew up on the coast of Florida, watching Cousteau movies and loving the ocean. As a girl I wanted to be a marine biologist but after learning about Mel Fisher’s Atocha find, I started telling people I wanted to be a marine archeologist. But I didn’t have what marine salvage takes and the dream died. Books like Doubloon let me dabble in the dream again. It’s hard to say whether my fondness for the subject matter causes me to look at the material with rose-colored glasses, but I honestly think that if you read early Crichton or Preston/Child then you would enjoy Doubloon too.

Santa Maria Magdalena's lanterns carved arcs of light as the galleon pitched through the horrific storm. Whipping rain and salt spray slashed across her decks in horizontal sheets.
