Cab Marin, owner of a struggling Caribbean dive shop, is helping marine biologist Vicki Jennings collect data for her thesis when they happen upon two amazing sights: an antique ship's lantern that continues to glow deep underwater and a massive barracuda that appears to be standing guard. Cab is a scientist at heart and these mysteries renew a passion for discovery that died out when a previous reach for the stars fell disastrously short. He commits himself to uncovering the lantern’s secret while Vicki abandons her thesis to study the barracuda. Their intertwined search for the truth endures competing priorities and a budding romance but takes a fateful turn when a local treasure-hunter concludes that they have found the gold-laden El Conquista. In a world where nature alone makes survival a challenge Cab and Vicki learn that life’s most rewarding treasures are found in unexpected places.
Cab’s Lantern blends the thrill of the unknown with the allure of credibility. It is science-inspired fiction, not science fiction, and readers who join Cab’s meticulous search for clues will learn that the lantern and barracuda have rational explanations. The characters are likewise authentic: they have troubled pasts, limited resources and find themselves dependent on others. Yet they rise above the norm when threatened and learn along the way that objectives sometimes blind us to what truly matters in life. Their story is a testament to dreamers who reach for stars.
