Joan Druett Synopsis: The Money Ship by Joan Druett is a standalone novel. Oriental adventurer Captain Rochester spun an entrancing tale to Jerusha, seafaring daughter of Captain Michael Gardiner — a story of a money ship, hidden in the deep waters of the South China Sea, which was nothing less than the lost trove of the pirate Hochman. As Jerusha was to discover, the clues that pointed the way to fabled riches were indeed strange — a haunted islet on an estuary in Borneo, an obelisk with a carving of a rampant dragon, a legend of kings and native priests at war, and of magically triggered tempests that swept warriors upriver. And even if the clues were solved, the route to riches was tortuous, involving treachery, adultery, murder, labyrinthine Malayan politics… and, ultimately, Jerusha’s own arranged marriage.
