A family of boys explores an old well, trying to find a buried treasure possibly related to an ancient Chinese treasure ship named the Silent sea. While exploring, one of the brothers is killed. The guilt haunts the remaining brothers, so they enlist and fight in WWII. Years later, Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon crew find the wreck of an old dirigible in the wilds of Argentina, while retrieving parts of a downed satellite. Argentina is in a precarious state having just recently had a military coup. Juan decides to find the family of the dirigible fatalities, to let them know what had happened to their loved ones. In the process, Juan takes on the hunt for that old Chinese ship, and runs into an Argentinian plan to annex a section of Antarctica. In a tangled twisted adventure which takes the Oregon to 3 continents, Juan once again is forced to take action to save the world from a huge calamity, which the US government is powerless to even take a part in.

Once again, this was a slow starting book. It took nearly 100 pages to set up the story. However, once Juan and his crew get the scent of the hunt, the book rockets along. A bit more of Juan's altruistic character becomes more evident. On to the next in this series! ( )
