    " A combination of civil War history, overview of the development of the submarine service and Clive Cussler adventure, he even plays a pivotal part in the hunt for the C.S.S Hunley.The only gold found is a twenty dollar gold piece but that one artifact makes the entire search worthwhile. "

    " Not only is it a good account of the Hunley, but it really picks up some great accounts of the people who found it or looked into it. I think specifically of the man who came across it but wouldn't reveal it's location for a while, and also the historical detective type lady known as Goldfinger. "
