KIRKUS REVIEW

Luther Martingale, dropped out of college (and his aunt's will) due to an episode with a Professor Ashman's niece, wins a boat playing poker and decides to achieve his academic re-entry by putting it to work in Ashman's interest--sailing to find the tomb of Beowulf whom Ashman has always maintained was real. But the old man who has cried Beowulf for so long is finally proved right--they find Roman and Geatish relics as well as new evidence of old Norse puissance...Mandatory in the genre Hammond Innes established with sassy touches throughout.
