David Angsten was born in Chicago. He works as a writer in Los Angeles. "Dark Gold" is his first novel. Please visit his Web site at www.davidangsten.com.
Take a quest to find a lost brother, hot sex with incredibly beautiful babes, a giant man-eating beast that may or may not be a god, a sunken ship and a fortune in gold. Throw in some evil, demented villagers and a pirate or two, place these plot elements into the hands of a stylish, intelligent writer, and you've got yourself a page-turner that will take readers back to the days when a good book meant you stayed up all night under the covers with a flashlight. Jack Duran heads to Mexico with his two pals, Duff and Rock, on the first leg of what they plan as an around-the-world adventure. Their immediate goal is to find Jack's errant brother, Dan, who has been missing for months. They become involved in a treasure hunt led by the mysterious Leopold Bellocheque, a Bahamian businessman with a fancy yacht and the aforementioned babes as his crew. The hunt quickly develops disastrous and deadly consequences. Screenwriter Angsten's tall tale is for grown-up boys who lust for swashbuckling literary adventure set in tropical climes. Extra batteries for that flashlight are recommended. (July) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
