Publisher's summary

On May 18th, 1863 - the day the siege of the Confederate stronghold at Vicksburg began - a secret war chest was removed by an ironclad and taken away along the Mississippi River. It contained a covenant capable of altering the entire course of the Civil War. Its destination was Washington, D.C. A place it never reached.

In the present day, Minnesotan senator Arthur Perry has enlisted the help of Sam Reilly to track down his son, who went missing while following a strange lead in the centuries-old search for the fabled Meskwaki Gold Spring within Lake Superior.

No one could have suspected that these two events, separated by more than 150 years, were inextricably linked....

Abit derivative, but entertaining

The good...it's reasonably well researched and has some entertaining moments involving Sam R. Interesting larger than life character.
The very good...Gilmore well suited to perform this book, and keeps it fresh and lively.
The mediocre..well, the plot lines in this series are very derivative and repetitive. To be expected in a series with this duration.
You sort of have to like this series...but, on balance, it's not bad.

I received my copy of this offering from the author in exchange for this independent review.

Gimme more Sam Reilly

Once again this series really stretches reality, and once again, I find that I don' really care because I am being entertained.

I like that this book pulls away from the Master Builder arc and is just a fun independent adventure. The same old reliable characters are here, and more of the diving and boats that you come to expect. It once again delivers on the fun tales of Sam.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
