Reviews

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.

I couldn't put it down."--John Scott Shepherd, author "Henry's List of Wrongs" and "The Dead Father's Guide to Sex & Marriage", and screenwriter for "Joe Somebody "and "Life or Something Like It"" ""Thrills and chills sunken gold, black magic, sea monsters, a beautiful Brazilian in a bikini--what more could you want from a summer thriller?"--"Kirkus Reviews"" ""A first-class roller-coaster ride of a novel."--Nick Redfern, author of "Three Men Seeking Monsters """"Like Benchley's "Jaws, "David Angsten's debut will once again chase swimmers out of the water. Fraught with shivering suspense and a hauntingly eerie atmosphere, "Dark Gold" grips with feverish intensity. As literate as it is frightening. Read it with both a silver cross and a speargun at your side."--James Rollins, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Map of Bones" and "Black Order" "
