    Mark Hagen is a far cry from the man he once was as a naval officer in World War II. Broken down and drunk, he’s been reduced to living outside the law, gunrunning and smuggling with his dilapidated boat.

    Then he rescues a woman from attackers in Macao. She’s alone, she needs help—and she claims to know the whereabouts of a quarter-million dollars in gold, lying in a scuttled craft at the bottom of a lagoon in the blighted marshlands of southern China. With this one quick score, Hagen could change his luck for good.

    Unfortunately, he’s not the only one looking for the gold. There’s the Chinese. And the Russians. And so many others.
