Hold Fast Books: A Sword for Pizarro
Combining the maritime adventure of Clive Cussler, the breezy escapism of Jimmy Buffett, and the witty mystery of Robert B. Parker, A Sword for Pizarro is a fast-paced, fun, sexy page- turner that makes for a great late-summer read!
Treasure-hunter Marshall Cross is down on his luck and recently divorced. His foundering archeology-themed amusement park, Treasure Island, is being threatened by ruthless real estate tycoon Denton Barrett, and Cross is hoping for a big find to stave off selling his dream. Finding Pizarro’s golden sword, an intricately carved, razor-sharp rapier lost in a hurricane in 1715 off the Coast of Brevard County, Florida, would do just that. Cross’ problems mount when news breaks that a meteor is forecast to strike the Atlantic, threatening to send a mammoth tsunami barreling into the Florida peninsula.
From undersea shipwrecks, to gator-infested swampland, to the Kennedy Space Center – Cross’ adventures find him going toe-to-toe with Barrett’s paramilitary army, a seductive zookeeper, and a surly bull shark named Marge. Can Cross unearth Pizarro’s sword, save Treasure Island, uncover an astronomical conspiracy, and find love – all before the meteor crashes into the ocean and his new-found adversaries turn him into shark bait?
Filled with high-seas excitement, breezy humor, and tropical romance, with A Sword for Pizarro, you’re not just reading a book, you’re along for the adventure.
