Summary
"In 1945 the U.S. submarine Tigerfish mistakenly torpedoed and sank a Japanese merchant ship. Reportedly carrying supplies to Allied POWs, the ship had been granted safe passage, but it was actually a cunning ruse devised by a powerful secret society to transport tons of gold out of Japan under the very eyes of the enemy. Some thirty years later the captain of the Tigerfish is murdered in Washington, D.C. As the CIA launches its investigation into his death, a race to raise the ship and recover its treasure begins, which mounts to an international incident involving the United States, China the Soviet Union and Japan." -- Back cover
