A mountain of treasure in Panama: whose will it be?
In 1667, a Spanish soldier makes a startling discovery. A vast treasure – or a curse?
Two centuries later, Charlie Parker, engineer and adventurer, voyages to Central America to build the Panama Canal – and engage in a few extracurricular activities in his spare time.
A pair of modern-day sailors find more adventure than they bargained for when they unravel a cryptic tangle of clues. Have they inherited incredible riches – or just big trouble?
Pieces of Eight. A silver spider. Plotting pirates. Scheming cartels. A treasure map without an X. Who will claim the prize?
Part sailing yarn, part adventure/mystery, part historical fiction, The Silver Spider is Katherine Neville’s The Eight blended with Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon, plus a touch of Indiana Jones. A sea adventure complete with a treasure hunt, a centuries-old mystery and the challenges of a modern relationship. Come along for the ride!
N. Slavinski is a sailor, author, and archaeologist turned teacher. Her fiction works place memorable characters in exotic locations and vividly capture the fun, fascinating world of globe-trotting sailors. Although The Silver Spider is the product of an imagination fed by many a starry night on the open ocean, most of the locations and sailing details are based on personal experience. Enjoy the adventure!
