Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The in-depth storytelling internet site Narratively posted the other day a long but fascinating essay by Dylan Taylor-Lehman about Tommy Thompson, the inventor and explorer who discovered the gold-laden wreck of the SS Central America, retrieved some of its cargo, and ended up running from the law as investors and insurance companies fought over the recoveries.

The essay updates the gripping story told brilliantly in Gary Kinder's 1998 book "Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea."

The essay is headlined "The Curse of the Ship of Gold" and it's posted at Narratively here:
