Dragon Sea Reviews


PRAISE FOR"DRAGON SEA" "Treasure and typhoons, conflict and greed, plus a cast of intriguing characters and a weighty issue at its heart--Frank Pope's tale has all the ingredients of a classic thriller. But it's all true. A stunning debut."--Nicholas Evans, author of"The Horse Whisperer""It takes a writer of extraordinary talent to tell a story like the one we find in "Dragon Sea, " but Frank Pope is one. This masterful recreation of the salvaging of the Hoi An hoard is as exciting as it is suspenseful--a thoughtful and gripping true thriller."--Clive Cussler
