AN ENTIRE VILLAGE WAS MASSACRED TO KEEP THEIR SECRET.

Near the end of World War II, a massive amount of looted gold and other priceless items was transported by the Japanese from Singapore to the Philippines and into the hands of General Tomoyuki Yamashita, the Military Governor. 


It was never seen again.


And today, a young man runs into trouble with the Yakuza, a ruthless Japanese crime syndicate, and turns to his great-grandfather for help. Too poor to save him, he gives him the only thing of value he has.


The truth of what happened during the Japanese retreat in the face of General MacArthur’s onslaught.


But what the elderly man doesn’t know is there was one other person who knew the secret as well, the horrifying truth revealed on his deathbed to an archaeologist who has been seeking the lost treasure  ever since.

And thanks to recently declassified satellite imagery, Acton might have found the final clue that leads them to the missing treasure.

Excellent Read

Kennedy has done it again! Another pulse-pounding thriller from the master of archeological suspense stories. In this one, Kennedy weaves a story surrounding a treasure trove of gold and other valuables stolen by the Japanese during World War 2 and hidden on an island in the Philippines. Superb plot with non-stop action.
