Name To A Face (original 2007; edition 2010)
Name to a Face by Robert Goddard (2007)
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385342179, Paperback)
He’d seen her somewhere once—he was sure of that. But the young woman gave no hint of recognition and before this could be explained, everything fell apart. . . . Tim Harding has come to Cornwall at the behest of a friend to represent him in an auction and facilitate the purchase of a much-coveted antique ring. Hayley Winter has come there for reasons of her own . . . and a centuries-old mystery is about to come crashing down around them both.
A decade before, a woman matching Hayley’s exact description died in a suspicious diving accident—at the side of the man giving Harding his orders. Now the ring, said to have been cut off the finger of a drowned British naval commander in 1707, is at the center of a many-tendrilled puzzle. Uncanny resemblances . . . stunning contradictions . . . Then Hayley’s sudden disappearance . . . For Harding, one misstep and a handful of coincidences ignite a search through dozens of lives, back into English history and the age of the Black Death, and forward to a fatal meeting in Germany . . . to find Hayley, her true identity, and the most shocking secret of all.

When Tim Harding agrees to represent a friend at an auction in Penzance, he is unaware of the secrets that tie the ring he is sent to buy to three separated events: the loss of HMS Association with all hands in 1707; an unsolved murder in Penzance 30 years later; and a fatal accident during a dive to the wreck in 1999.
