Back cover copy

"With his chess-like plots and mysterious characters, Arturo Perez-Reverte has established himself as the master of the intellectual thriller, a reputation again confirmed with The Nautical Chart."--Chicago Tribune
Coy is a suspended sailor without a ship. At an auction in Barcelona, he meets a beautiful woman obsessed with the Dei Gloria, a Jesuit ship sunk by pirates in the seventeenth century. Tanger uses her considerable skills with men and her expertise with atlases and nautical maps to search for the ship's rumored lost treasure. Coy is quickly drawn into her search and finds himself falling in love as they seek their fortune together-or do they? This masterfully plotted novel combines richness of atmosphere with the addictive romance and mystery of the sea. It is an unforgettable adventure.
Internationally acclaimed author Arturo Perez-Reverte was born in 1951 in Spain, where he lives. His bestselling books have been translated into nineteen languages in thirty countries and have sold millions of copies.

Review quote

"A work whose intentional, delicious, and old-fashioned blurring of
the distinction between high literature and pop entertainment entitles
it to a space of its own in that library--and in yours."
