“It occurs to me that if I cannot understand the mind of my fellow human being, how can I ever presume to know the mind of God?”
Dane Maddock, ex-SEAL, is a treasure hunter and is hired by Kaylin Maxwell, a charming young lady, whose father was murdered when he was on the brink of discovering a ancient Biblical artefact. Maddock goes on a treasure hunt and soon finds out why some people are determined to prevent the item from being found.
"Dourado" is an old-fashioned adventure novel, full of action and with lots of twists and turns, exotic locations, mysterious characters, a bit of humour and a hint of romance. Think "Indiana Jones". Not a lot of character development, but that's not something I would expect to find in this kind of book. Fine entertainment, if a bit shallow.
