This comic novel unfolds through correspondence between Zachary McCaltex, a librarian, and his wife, Twang, who is living apart from him in Italy. The two are trying to unearth the exact location of a 16th-century treasure somewhere off the Florida coast. As the story develops, it is evident that more than water separates these two.
