About the Author
After graduating from Santa Monica High School in southern California, Otto served in the U. S. Navy during the Korean War as a Quartermaster on a minesweeper. He returned home and went back to school on the G.I. Bill, eventually obtaining his Doctorate In Educational Psychology from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). Otto was hired as a professor to teach in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where he initiated a multilevel Scuba training curriculum on campus. Dr. Gasser spent 37 years at Cal Poly before retiring. During that time, he taught a number of classes including Anatomical Kinesiology, Physiology of Exercise, and Sports Psychology. He also certified over 2,000 students in Scuba. He served as the University's Diving Safety Officer and represented the campus on the California State College and Universities Diving Safety Committee. Off campus, Dr. Gasser spent ten years on the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles County Underwater Instructors Association, three of them as President. Over the years, he has volunteered time on a number of county Scuba training programs and has authored several articles about diver training. He remains an avid recreational diver and enjoys telling tall sea tales. Otto is happily married and lives on a mountain top in southern California.

Bobby Wright, the main character, is a scuba instructer who lives a pretty carefree life. He gets talked into looking for a lost treasure by two of his female students. Also along is a friend of his, Vince, a bartender with an eye for the ladies and a host of macho ego. Well, lo and behold, they find the chest of gold coins and then the trouble starts. Everyone has different ideas as how the treasure should be devided and how best to keep the goverment officials out of their hair (and pocketbooks). How each individual plots to get their share and more and how each person's back story comes to light makes for a really good read.
While there wasn't quite as much underwater action as I had hoped for, this was still a fun read and well worth the purchase price. Mr. Gasser really brings out his characters very well even though some of his dialogue is a little too mechanical at times. For what appears to be a self published book, the grammatical errors were very few. It appears it was proof read quite well which I was glad of as many of these self-pub books are quite distracting with so many mistakes in them.
I will look forward to a sequel if one is planned.
