About the Book - Lost & Found

Two days after BRIAN PAULISS and PETER CLOPEC reprogram a geological survey satellite; they are fired and accused of crashing the orbiting spacecraft. One day later, a beautiful young woman is strangled after she delivers a compact disk proving that Brian and Peter are innocent. What is found on the computer disk however is far beyond the normal telemetry of a satellite designed to search for future oil fields. When Peter and Brian reprogrammed the radar from the satellite, they had no idea the orbiting spacecraft would find 97 anomalies with a strong signature for gold. 97 anomalies all over the world, and all over water: all the lost shipwrecks and all the lost gold undiscovered for centuries.

One year earlier, a West Texas oil company hired Peter and Brian to manage the latest technology in petroleum discovery: an orbiting spacecraft housing a ground penetrating radar. Both men are English academics and have a much better grasp on the fields of their expertise than on their personal lives. Peter is a brilliant geologist but an emotional wreck. Only months before, on his fiftieth birthday, his wife and daughter were killed by a terrorist bomb in London. Brian is a late forties, chain-smoking; aerospace engineer divorced from his second wife, and determined to win his private battle with mid-life-crisis.

After Brian convinces Peter that the computer disk contains all the lost treasure ships sunk around the world, the two men embark on the greatest adventure of their lives: a mission to prove that the satellite results are true.

On the closest, and what they believe to be the shallowest and easiest wreck site to salvage, they meet BILLIE JOHNSON. Billie is strikingly beautiful dive-captain and salvage expert in southwest Florida. Her staggering beauty and perky spirit rekindle a springtime of emotions that both Peter and Brian had thought forgotten. The men also realize, as a hurricane approaches, and threatens their salvage dive site that Billie needs help to escape from her abusive husband dysfunctional lifestyle.

With an orange glow rising in the midnight sky, Billie pulls the anchors on her salvage-dive rig and begins piloting the hundred-foot vessel back to her family owned marina. With Peter and Brian standing at her side, Billie faces her worst nightmare: her entire marina and home burned to the ground and a fleet of customer's boats burned and sunk at the docks.

Unbeknownst to Peter, Brian, and Billie, CEDRIC BOWLES: the security director from the West Texas oil company knows all about the computer disk and has been following after murdering the young woman in Texas who was the first person to acquire the disk.

The adventure continues as Billie travels with Peter and Brian onward to the richest wreck site of the 97 anomalies: an ancient shipwreck off the Black Sea coast in Turkey. With Billie's expertise in diving and salvage the lost treasure ship of King Midas is discovered along with a new and local adversary and the relentless pursuit of Cedric Bowles. What Billie ultimately discovers is she has found something far more valuable than gold, and without Peter Clopec, her newfound hope for a new love and a new life would be all but lost.
