Lara leads the first-ever McClintoch & Swain antiques and archaeology tour to Tunisia, exotic land of ancient Roman ruins and modern Arab cities. But when bodies start turning up, Lara realizes that not everyone on the tour came along for the sea and the shopping. Someone has a murderous interest in finding a Carthaginian merchant ship that sank over two thousand years ago and they won't let anyone stop them from bringing up the priceless artifacts that went down with it.
The story of an old sponge diver who claims to have found the shipwreck and its treasure has everyone captivated - and the lure of hidden riches at the bottom of the sea has someone out for blood...
