More GOLD!


David Angsten's sister-in-law and nephew

Nothing is more satisfying than seeing a client’s book actually getting distributed. Dark Gold by David Angsten hits the Berkeley bookstore!


David Angsten's Dark Gold has just appeared in paperback. David's just finished his second novel, Night of the Furies.

You can buy DARK GOLD at your local bookstore and online at
Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

"Like Benchley's JAWS, David Angsten's debut will once again chase swimmers out of the water. Fraught with shivering suspense and a hauntingly eerie atmosphere, DARK GOLD grips with a feverish intensity. As literate as it is frightening. Read it with both a silver cross and a spear gun at your side." --James Rollins, the New York Times bestseller of Map of Bones and Black Order

"Take another look at this book's cover. What's hidden inside will make your eyes widen." --DAVID MORRELL, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF CREEPERS

"A pastiche of Crichton, Lovecraft, Jules Verne, and Robinson Crusoe." --Entertainment Weekly

From PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:

"Take a quest to find a lost brother, hot sex with incredibly beautiful babes, a giant man-eating beast that may or may not be a god, a sunken ship and a fortune in gold. Throw in some evil, demented villagers and a pirate or two, place these plot elements into the hands of a stylish, intelligent writer, and you've got yourself a page-turner that will take readers back to the days when a good book meant you stayed up all night under the covers with a flashlight.

Jack Duran heads to Mexico with his two pals, Duff and Rock, on the first leg of what they plan as an around-the-world adventure. Their immediate goal is to find Jack's errant brother, Dan, who has been missing for months. They become involved in a treasure hunt led by the mysterious Leopold Bellocheque, a Bahamian businessman with a fancy yacht and the aforementioned babes as his crew. The hunt quickly develops disastrous and deadly consequences. Screenwriter Angsten's tall tale is for grown-up boys who lust for swashbuckling literary adventure set in tropical climes.

Extra batteries for that flashlight are recommended."
