Title: Gallows on the Sand

Written by: Morris West

 Gallows

International bestselling author
#1 bestselling author

A quest for buried treasure in a shipwreck in Australia's Great Barrier Reef turns into a race against a treacherous rival.

Twenty chests of minted Spanish gold in a sunken galleon – this is the lure that brings historian Renn Lundigan to a tiny island off Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Renn enlists islander Johnny Akimoto to teach him scuba diving, but soon realises there's a far greater danger in the reef than the sharks. Gambling den owner Manny Mannix has followed him to the island, and now he threatens not only Renn and Johnny, but also the beautiful young scientist Pat Mitchell. Gallows on the Sand is a fast-paced story of high adventure, with the rich characterisation that made Morris West one of the bestselling writers of his day.

'West is a great storyteller, a writer who can spin a fine yarn, and keep us guessing until the tale is told.'
