A 2019 Clive Cussler Adventure Award Semi-Finalist


Off the shores of the Outer Banks, a lost shipwreck beneath the Atlantic could hold the key to solving a centuries-old mystery and defeating life’s greatest enemy: death.

Lucas Caine is struggling to get his deep-sea salvage operation off the ground. But when he makes a discovery off the coast of Nags Head, he finds himself in the middle of a 200-year-old secret government operation. It’s mission: to find the Fountain of Youth. 

Caught between a shadow agency and another mysterious group sworn to protect the Fountain at all costs, Lucas doesn’t know who–if anyone–to trust.

With his best friend Darwin by his side, the team must trace a cryptic path originating from the ocean’s depths on a high-octane search for the greatest treasure of them all. But one-by-one the team disappears. 

Can Lucas end the quest and locate his friends while he runs for his life? Or will he be next?

In the tradition of Clive Cussler, James Rollins, and Dan Brown, this adventure will have you turning the pages.
