TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ After a tragic mistake that cost a young Spanish girl her life, Thomas Raymond's career as a marine archeologist and treasure hunter came to an abrupt end. Following a number of other personal setbacks, he started a new life as a charter boat captain on the west coast of Florida. While struggling to keep his business afloat during the perceived coastal damage from a major oil spill, an enigmatic businessman offered Thomas a chance to jump back into the life he had squandered a decade prior.

With the once dormant treasure hunting juices flowing again, he dove in with both feet and soon realized he was in way over his head.

by Kristen Price - Jan 24, 2017
