Intelligent. Sophisticated. Kickass. Vanessa Goodwin, renowned treasure-hunter of the Roarin’ ’20’s, is hired for a job grander than she’s ever undertaken: to retrieve the Golden Fleece of Ancient Greek legend. Skeptical that such an artifact even exists, she assembles a team of modern Argonauts to voyage into the Aegean Sea. Myth becomes reality as her labyrinthine journey uncovers what truth may lurk behind the precious object—and about her long lost brother. How much will a thoroughly modern woman risk to find family and fleece?
