It is December 7, 1941, and five brothers have made an extraordinary discovery off the coast of Washington State on a small island. As they are on this, news of Pearl Harbor reaches them. Back in the present, Cabrillo is chasing the remnants of a satellite in an Argentinean jungle. He stumbles upon a remarkable revelation of his own. As he tries to untangle the mystery, he first heads towards the small islands and the secret, and then on the track of an ancient Chinese expedition. There is a curse that has survived for 500 years. If Cabrillo and his team succeed, the reaping will be plenty, but if they fail, then it’s certain death.
These stories always have something to teach us about history. There is non-stop action without much gore and lurid sex. This novel is based on the headlines of the time it was released – US debt to China and how it can affect foreign policy and national security.
