This is a great read! It is full of action, suspense, tons of adventure and I actually read it all night to find out what happened in the end! This is aparently a new author and I personally hope he writes more novels. Lost and Found would make an incredible movie...sort of an Indiana Jones kind of ride. I really liked one of the main characters, a woman named Billie. She is the woman every woman wants to be and the woman every man wants and her role in this adventure just adds to the excitement. Strongly suggest reading this!!!

Author, Tom Williams, uses his knowledge as a diver and long time member of the merchant marines to bring you a very believable tale of a maritime treasure hunt. The story starts in a corporate setting that has elements of greed and treachery and ends with a murder and then moves to sea in Florida and then on to Turkey. In what at times seems an unbelievable quest and series of adventures the characters and the authors attention to detail keep things real. There is romance thrown in with a female salvage captain that joins them in Florida in their quest for hidden treasure. While there are no real pirates there is no shortage of bad guys. Just when you think you have the plot figured out it embarks on another twist and keeps you guessing until the end which will come quickly as this book is easy to read and hard to put down.

Lost and Found,” combines the old world romance of a treasure hunt with modern day technology to spin a tale of suspense, greed, murder, romance and treachery that travels from Florida to Turkey. The heroes, two British expatriates embark on an adventure to not only try to prove their innocence in a corporate murder but to also seek riches underneath the ocean’s surface. They team with a beautiful woman in Florida who already is a salvage captain on their quest for treasure. Along the way they battle weather, dangerous characters and at times each other. This book skillfully combines all of these elements into a book that is entirely unpredictable up until the end. This is a great book for a day that is going to be spent in airports and planes all day.
