ATLANTIS FIRE: A NOVEL
By Gary Goshgarian
Six American drivers—a college professor, soldiers-of-fortune, an unfulfilled woman, a driven Jesuit archaeologist—search the crystalline, menacing waters of the Greek Isles for a fabled lost city. They find it. The end of their search is the beginning of an extraordinary adventure, for the treasures of Atlantis are sought by governments and cutthroats alike, threatened by volcanic islands where eruptions are a daily occurrence, and guarded by a monumental icon that has defied the touch of all but one man since a thousand years before Plato's time...
This superbly crafted novel, set amid the mystery and majesty of the Aegean, combines high tension and suspense with a terrifying realism, climaxing in an unforgettable undersea battle between two armies in wetsuits deep in the exhaust vents of a submerged volcano.
