Golden Conspiracy by Robert James Glider

goldenReviewed by Laura Goodwin

This novel starts out with some background information from a treasure hunter named Captain Kidd and his crew aboard the Santa Ynez. The crew surmised that the gold that was recovered was linked to evil and they decided to burn the vessel. The gold that was carried had an estimated value of Thirty million dollars, and this was in 1503. A descendant of Captain Kidd, Jacsen Kidd sets out to find the gold and learn what happened along the voyage to Queen Isabella.

The novel picks up speed when gold cross dating back to the 1500’s is found on a beach in Hawaii. Jacsen and his best friend/partner, Pericles Schmoond decides to figure out what happened to the gold. The further along they try to find out more information, the men realize they have uncovered a vast conspiracy. The novel journeys from the Hawaiian Islands, the Caribbean, and to a Brazilian Island, Fernando de Norhona, as the men follow the clues. They are trailed by an ex KGB agent, Garth Moska who tries everything in his powers to make sure Jacsen winds up dead. He tries to blow up the ship off the coast of England and thinks Jacsen is aboard it. They are also trailed by a French Antiquities dealer as well.

I liked this book because it has a lot of action and drama. The author is very descriptive in the settings, especially of Hawaii, and it is apparent that he did his homework on the history of the locations as well. He is so descriptive in the surroundings; it is almost like you are there. I especially like the excerpts from the next book and it has me anxiously awaiting the next book. This novel is more geared towards the historical thriller category, with people of all ages in mind, young or old. It also falls into the general adventure category as well.
