Description:

This novel is about Dirck, a young man who inherited a large amount of money from his parents. Filled with more ego than brains, he invests it all in what turns out to be a fraudulent, criminal-run, oil company scheme, with the expected result. Around this time, Dirck acquires some very old information about a pirate ship that allegedly sank in the early 1500s, near the family homestead off the Carolina coast, with a hold full of gold. In desperation, he gives part of the information to Welper, the head of the oil scheme. Things get worse for Dirck, so, in despair, he writes to Maddaleen, his sister, living in Europe, and tells her that he is planning to commit suicide out of shame. ...

Here is a really good thriller/adventure story. There is no sex, and almost no violence, so the author relies on very fine writing that will keep the reader interested.—Paul, on goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]
