    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.
