Sharks, white sand beaches, gold, greed and romance all add up to high seas adventure in the fabled Caribbean.

Ex navy test pilot, Jack Carlton operates his 90-foot charter schooner out of English Harbour, Antigua. With his trusty mate Cobb and beautiful cook Megan, Jack sails the Fandango through squalls and reef-strewn waters to an appointment with fate on remote Aves Island.

On a routine dive expedition, an old Spanish document written by a 19th century monk comes to light and his passengers turn out to be more than just tourists. Long lost treasure spells trouble for Jack and his crew as they find themselves unwillingly embroiled in a plan to salvage the gold.

Marooned on the lonely sand spit in the middle of the Caribbean Jack and Megan survive a hurricane only to face certain death on the waterless Caribbean cay.

About the Author:
Born in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, Lou grew up in the Caribbean. He became an avid spear-fisherman, free diving for grouper on Bahamian reefs as well as a successful big game fisherman fighting blue marlin on the famous "drop off" of Jost Van Dyke in the Virgin Islands. He spent a lifetime under sail in vessels from 50 to 247 feet. Through hurricanes, an attempted drug hijacking in the Bahamas and a shipboard fire during a storm off the African coast, he has led the adventurer's life.

Swallowing the anchor in 1996, he returned to Canada where he devotes his time to writing. His first book "The Man Who Loved Schooners" was published in 2000. Lou has completed a number of other manuscripts, two of which are tentatively titled "Tales From The Captain's Table" and "Where The Trade Winds Blow," which chronicles his own life.
