At Play in the Seas of the Lord by George L. Duncan
There is nothing more dangerous than a con man extraordinaire with a credible story. But Rutger Hollins not only has a credible treasure hunting tale, he has a gold doubloon and the backing of a respected, internationally known professor. Hollins wants divers to help him find the Diablo, a sunken Spanish treasure ship holding $800 million in gold and diamonds. Former police reporter and Christian Harrison Craig is skeptical but agrees to help Hollins, especially when he's told the stunningly beautiful Coral Delaplaine, also a Christian, has signed on for the voyage. But a group of occultists is also searching for the vessel. The group is headed by Anton De Riles, a Black Arts master who has immense and deadly powers. But the Diablo has mysteries of its own. It hides a terrible secret and an ancient evil. Craig and Coral will fall in love during the voyage, but must battle on land, sea and under the sea and also fight supernatural demonic forces before they can claim the treasure. They must also fight the temptation that $800 million in gold can bring.
