Fatal Treasure is one of the best books I have ever read! I read a lot of books about treasure hunting and pirates, but this ranks at the top. It is the true story of Mel Fisher and his family and their quest to find the Atocha treasure. The book shares the accomplishments and the tragedies that took place during their quest, ending in the success of one of the worlds most famous treasure hunters. If you ever wanted to learn what real treasure hunting is all about, this is the book to read.
