From the grave Richard Dennison catapults his squabbling four children into a hunt for a vast treasure-trove of Spanish gold and silver coins. Can they discover a fortune or do the clues evade them and the prize lost forever? Do you think it's easy to inherit millions of dollars? Well, it's not for the Dennison kids. Spanish Pieces of Eight is a Silicon Valley romp inside a modern-day Caribbean treasure-hunt that catapults four unwilling siblings into a battle of wit and greed, all who crave riches as well as their deceased father's praise and acceptance. All people on the globe sit down to type on their computer or text their friends, and know that Silicon Valley is a place where dreams come true. But this story is not about The Valley. It's about people and how they can be pushed and pulled into acting outlandishly in their own interests at the expense of everyone else. The Silicon Valley marketing wiz and worldwide sailor dies hours before he is set to undo a complicated and family-busting competition for a vast treasure trove of Spanish gold and silver in the British Virgin Islands. Spoiled and self-centered, his children try to unwind the clues to the proverbial "pot of gold." The family lawyer, Bill Price, acquired Richard's diary only to page through it every evening providing the complete backstory of Richard's life....and the key to the treasure. Money, greed, and deep rifts in the family structure highlight this riveting story.
