(From the publisher):
It was Boke Carey's kill of a lifetime, his pot at rainbow's end - a million dollars in gold ingots buried in volcanic ash on a barren Central American island.
Gold was Carey's business. Now he had it in sight - only the others on this palatial white yacht stood between the gold and Carey, in a kind of dark barrier of violence.
There was Jodi, the platinum-haired Venus, a beautiful, chattering monkey of a girl who kept her eyes glued to the main chance.
Anson, the oxlike consort of thieves, who gambled only on sure things - like beating a man to death.
LŖpez-O'Brien, the sadistic steward, who appeared out of nowhere - his only worldly possession an arsenal of knives.
And there was Sheila, the Spanish beauty as ruthless as he, the only one of them Carey feared - and loved.
