A fabled Spanish treasure trove buried off the coast of Key West anchors Doubloon, a salty thriller by Jay Amberg (Blackbird Singing). Pilot Jack Gallagher knows more about planes than boats, but when his father dies and leaves him stock in his salvage company, Jack feels duty bound to help his stepmother and stepbrother keep the company afloat. A beautiful, combative reporter, some crafty Cuban expats and a raft of weatherbeaten divers keep the plot moving at a steady clip. The final recovery scenes in the face of a raging hurricane deliver true high seas drama.
