KNIGHTS OF GOLD is a story of intrigue, corruption, betrayal, and the quest for enormous riches. American history buffs have long wondered, what happened to the Confederate Treasury at the end of the Civil War? The Knights of the Golden Circle know. And they have been protecting it ever since. They were once the financiers of the rebellious South; now they survive as an underground paramilitary organization. Their constant adversaries are the Loyal League. In the 1970's, the Knights find themselves with a new problem. Two Oregon legislators decode the signs and discover a map in a dead man's mouth that leads them to South Carolina, where the gold is buried. Finding the treasure may be the easy part; uncovering it and keeping it is quite another matter. This historical and political thriller takes the reader from Oregon, to South Carolina, to Florida, to the resorts of Grand Cayman Island, and to the jungles of interior Brazil. The award winning author, Dell Isham, weaves his knowledge of history, his military background, and his political experience into a fascinating tale of greed and evil deeds.
