Publisher's Summary

A sunken treasure. An ancient Biblical artifact. A mystery as old as humankind. On January 25, 1829, the Portuguese brig Dourado sank off the coast of Indonesia, losing its cargo of priceless treasures from the Holy Land. One of these lost relics holds the key to an ancient mystery. But someone does not want this treasure to come to light.

When her father is murdered while searching for the Dourado, Kaylin Maxwell hires treasure hunter and former Navy Seal Dane Maddock and his partner Uriah "Bones" Bonebrake, to locate the Dourado and recover a lost Biblical artifact, the truth behind which could shake the foundations of the Church, and call into question the fundamentally held truths of human existence.

Join Dane and Bones on a perilous adventure that carries them from the depths of the Pacific to ancient cities of stone as they unravel the mystery of the Dourado.

What the Critics Say

"A fast-paced adventure with action to spare. Dane Maddock is a hero cut from the Dirk Pitt mold, and 'Bones' Bonebrake is the best sidekick around. If you like your thrillers with a touch mystery and Biblical archaeology, Dourado is the book for you. (Megalith Book Reviews)

    "A great listen"

    I throughly enjoyed this book. It has a nice mixture of adventure, action, mystery and intrigue. The characters are great and the writing makes it easy to keep turning the page. I will definitely be reading more in this series.

    I have been waiting for this book to become available on audio and it was definitely worth the wait. Kafer does a superb job of bringing the characters to life. He is Bones!!

    "Just OK"
    What did you like best about Dourado? What did you like least?

    This is an adventure story that reminds me of James Rollins books. As unbelievable as his books are, this one is even more unbelievable and not as well written.


    Would you recommend Dourado to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you like adventures, any adventure, then listen to this book. Otherwise, skip it. There is nothing special about it.


    What didn’t you like about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance?

    The narrator was totally flat. His delivery had no excitement, no real change for characters. I think he was trying to mimic what he imagined a tough navy seal might sound like. Instead, he was just boring.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO.
