In memory of George Robert Limon
At the resort of Ibiza off the coast of Spain, a naked young woman runs out of the darkness into the headlights of Jack Nelson's jeep. The woman is Sister Claire Bouvier, fleeing for her life - and hunting for a lost treasure. For Nelson, a pilot specializing in island hopping and small-time smuggling, and his partner, a Vietnam vet who's gone beyond the limits of mortal fear, it's a chance to trade their battered souls for a bold mission and unexpected wealth. But first they must overpower a ruthless colonel of the Algerian Security Police, a man with a private army at his command who will do anything to grab the prize. A war is on that can turn an island paradise into a raging inferno - and turn a fight for gold into a race to death.
