The author's 'half-vast' (sic) command of ancient history shows up in some downright howling anachronisms. She has the bad guys recovering a sunken treasure that includes a net full of gold coins from a supposed 15th century BC wreck, when coins weren't invented until the 7th century BC. But the biggest boner of the lot has to be the suggestion that one of the types of remains that might be left in the 'footprint' of such a shipwreck might be cannons!
Dramatically, everything is far too easy for both the heroine and the villain. Neither of them has to do any actual work or solve any actual mysteries to find the treasure. Any problem-solving has already been done by somebody else. And even with a treasure map, which could only have been approximate, at best, it is ludicrous to suppose that anyone could have located a 3500 year old wreck site and brought up ALL its remains within hours! After all, even with exact coordinates, it took 70 years to locate the wreck of the Titanic!
And once the treasure is found, the supposed archaeologists show no further interest in the artifacts - about as much interest as I have of ever reading another of this author's books!
First book I have read by this author and will be the last.
But, no. This story is a simple heist which is solved by an invincible super-hero.
