About the Author

David L. Mearns, a Britain-based scientist and deep-sea shipwreck hunter, has found some of the world's most notorious shipwrecks, many of which had once been deemed unable to be found. Over his twenty-five-year career, he has led the research and discovery of twenty-two major shipwrecks, and his company Blue Water Recoveries has been awarded three Guinness World Records, including one for the deepest shipwreck ever found. He has been the subject of Discovery Channel documentaries and was recently featured in National Geographic's "Best Job Ever" series. He is a fellow of the Explorers Club and the Royal Geographical Society. This is his first book to be published in America.

For Mearns, setting world records and recovering centuries-old treasures is just another day at the office--or ocean, rather.--National Geographic
The underwater worlds of past and present collide in the depths of the ocean in this gripping and suspenseful narrative by David Mearns, a true expert on mysteries of the deep sea.--Clive Cussler

Engaging. Intertwines the technical aspects of his work with the human narrative surrounding these wrecks in a compelling manner. His excitement about what we're yet to discover in the oceans is infective. Mearns is an able storyteller whose life's work makes for an absorbing read.
A fascinating view into the process of conducting a marine quest. Whether viewed as occupational inspiration or as a true-life deep-sea Clive Cussler entertainment, Mearns' chronicle will inform and interest many a reader.
