Gold on a Sailboat! An Intrepid Expedition

Author Name: Sam Venkatesam | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Can you smuggle some thirty-five million dollars worth of gold openly and so audaciously that no one can catch you when you carry it from Houston to Cochin on the high seas using a sailboat? Dr. Mohan Reddy, an American metallurgist, does it, and he does it successfully. The gold bars were accidentally found by him in a jungle in Texas. The original thief of the gold comes to know about his loss and keeps an eagle’s eye on Mohan all the time.

What about Mohan’s own challenges? The movement of gold bars within the US is the first one. The next one is converting the shape of gold amenable for transportation, a metallurgical nightmare. What about the treacherous Atlantic Ocean? What about the pirates of the Arabian Sea? What about the moles placed by the original thief of the gold on his sailboat? What about converting the gold into legal money? 

Most importantly, how would he handle the whole perilous caper all alone and without any latitude for error or failure?
