After watching an interesting documentary about the Odyssey company
and its incredible finds, especially one that is in court, I wonder
about the topic of treasure hunting in hardboiled literature. This
case would make for good thrillers. The advances in technology have
changed the game considerably.
P.S. The current conflict is that the enormous load of silver (600
thousand coins) came from a disputed location. Odyssey says it came
from somewhere in the Atlantic. The Spanish government says it had to
come from the Mediterranean, in Spanish waters.
