Product description


"For voyaging sailors, the book will seem familiar yet new. The familiarity rests with the everyday challenges and joys of living aboard while passagemaking; the novelty stems from the intriguing multi-level plot that weaves through the book. Ultimately, Slavinski does a great job keeping the three plots and myriad characters all working together as The Silves Spider reaches its daring ending." - Ocean Navigator Magazine

"The descriptions are immersive and the writing is fluid. The author’s first hand cruising experience is invaluable infusing the adventure/historical-fiction story with a feeling beyond “well researched”, rather more true to life. The reader almost forgets the fictional nature of the book. The Silver Spider turned out to be a real page turner that I devoured in just a few sittings. I highly recommend it to cruisers or non-cruisers alike. The fictional story blended with living experiences is a wonderfully immersive idea that more cruising-writers should imitate." - SV Venilia Blog

Product Description

A mountain of treasure in Panama: whose will it be?
In 1667, a Spanish soldier makes a startling discovery. A vast treasure – or a curse?
Two centuries later, Charlie Parker, engineer and adventurer, voyages to Central America to build the Panama Canal – and engage in a few extracurricular activities in his spare time.
A pair of modern-day sailors find more adventure than they bargained for when they unravel a cryptic tangle of clues. Have they inherited incredible riches – or just big trouble?

Pieces of Eight. A silver spider. Plotting pirates. Scheming cartels.
A treasure map without an X.
Who will claim the prize?

Part sailing yarn, part adventure/mystery, part historical fiction, The Silver Spider is Katherine Neville's The Eight blended with Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon, plus a touch of Indiana Jones. A raucous sea adventure complete with a treasure hunt, a centuries-old mystery, and the challenges of a modern relationship. Come along for the ride!

N. Slavinski is a sailor, author, and archaeologist turned teacher. Her fiction works place memorable characters in exotic locations and vividly capture the fun, fascinating world of globe-trotting sailors. Although The Silver Spider is the product of an imagination fed by many a starry night on the open ocean, most of the locations and sailing details are based on personal experience. Enjoy the adventure!
