Overview

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 mysteriously 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.

Editorial Reviews

Megalith Book Reviews
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
Author of Fortune Favors - Sean Ellis
"Dourado is a brisk read, reminiscent of early Cussler adventures, and perfect for an afternoon at the beach or a cross-country flight. You'll definitely want more of Maddock." Sean Ellis- Author of Into the Black

    A Fast-Paced Thriller You Won't Want to Put Down

    Dourado is part DaVinci Code, part Indiana Jones with a heavy dose of Clive Cussler poured out on top. The story follows two former Navy SEALS who are called on to tackle a Biblical mystery and find an ancient biblical relic. The action goes from the Caribbean to the Pacific to mainland US, culimnating with a final showdown in an ancient city in the Holy Land. A fast, fun read!

    Cartoonish, at best. The metaphors jump off each page.

    A Must Read

    This book is an easy, fun and suspensful read full of adventure and intrigue. The characters are excellent and the plot line new and refreshing with a lot of twists and turns. I certainly hope the author continues to write and publish. Highly recommended!

    All of Wood's novels are too short.I prefer 500 pages at the lea

    All of Wood's novels are too short.I prefer 500 pages at the least...way too short to leave a mark with me.Not worth the investment.Great concepts but a waste of time this short.
