THE GOLDEN OYSTER by Donald Gordon


Email this review


Peter Grey and his flight observer and buddy Ken Richards just happened to be two of four survivors that spotted Rommel's six million pounds worth of war booty going down off the coast of Libya. Years later they go after it and find out that they have rough competition in the form of ex-Gestapo lieutenant Schultz, the Mafia and a strange Italian girl who seems to appear everywhere. Two great action scenes: plummeting to the bottom in a crippled underwater capsule and landing a ruptured plane with ary a landing gear or a prayer offset the really unwieldy fictions of the plot.
