Christopher Grey's "Will Shakespeare and the Ships of Solomon" @greyauthor #Adventure #Book

Posted on Monday, March 3, 2014

Dorothy took a mouthful of seawater as her head bumped against a stalactite. The water level was pushing her neckline, and just then the treasure hunter next to her lost his torch in the water. Keeping above water was becoming more and more difficult as the cavern ceiling pressed down upon him. She wanted to cuss out the companion next to her, but it would do no good, and she couldn’t say she would have behaved any differently. Her complete lack of French stopped her communicating with him at all anyway.
It began to dawn on her that they may not get out of this. A cold feeling rose up in her stomach, and it wasn’t the decreasing temperature of the chamber but the horror of realization. Casting thoughts around in her head, she had a difficult time settling on any one comforting place. Instead, panic rose, and she found herself pounding the ceiling of the cavern as the water level lapped against her chin. The French-Canadian fell beneath and gasped next to her, howling as he saw the air above him disappear.
Suddenly Will splashed out and crashed into the ceiling, apparently startled by how quickly it had filled. Spitting out water, he coughed for a moment.
“Gun,” he gasped. “I need your gun.” Shaking his head, he tried in French, “J’ai besoin du pistolet.
The French-Canadian didn’t hesitate. He passed the weapon to Will, his face pale and panicked. Dorothy felt a bit more at ease upon seeing him. She didn’t know him well, but she saw a mission written across his face. He had calm blue eyes and a dedicated expression. He disappeared beneath the water, and for a moment they heard nothing. The moment turned into several, and now their heads were pinned at the ceiling, only their mouths and noses above the water.
Dorothy lost sight of the treasure hunter. Water consumed her, and she fought to keep it out of her lungs. The torch went out, and it was completely dark. Sloshing water and currents roared around her. Chills spun up her spine, and her breath began to fail.
So this is it ...
A blast echoed from beneath her, followed by a distant but profound creaking. Suddenly, the water dropped beneath her, and she was sucked under.
In the fall of 1947, Will Shakespeare saw the world collapse around him. Shakespeare, a secret soldier for the Knights Templar, barely escapes the slaughter of his entire knighthood at the hands of a rogue militant arm of the Vatican in a small Montreal church. With orders to escort Templar business associate Dorothy Wilkinson back to her home in Bermuda, Will must locate and rescue the most important secret treasure in human history before it is devoured by a hurricane in the watery caves beneath her father's property. The spiraling quest sends Will and Dorothy into uncovering dark secrets that make up the origins of the knighthood as they confront the traps and puzzles that masterfully protect the world's most coveted treasure.
