Another thrilling read by Chris Kuzneski with humour and great characters as well as some gripping historical fiction. I also liked the link to Petr Ulster at the end of the novel, which in a way I was hoping for, as the story unfolded. Already looking forward to the next "Payne and Jones" and "Hunters" books.

But in the turmoil of war, the treasure was scattered - and lost. Almost a century later, the haul is valued at over 3.5 billion dollars. Despite hundreds of attempts to find it, its location has remained a mystery...
