Crusader Gold is the stunning follow up to 2005's bestselling debut Atlantis. For many it is the Jewish menorah, the huge golden candlestick looted by the Romans in AD 70 then carried to Constantinople.
Now, nobody knows where it is. Some think it survived and is concealed in the Vatican.
Some think it took an altogether more extraordinary turn, at the beginning of history itself ...Jack Howard is the only man who can find out.
But the clock is ticking against him. The quest to find out takes him from the fall of the Roman Empire to the last days of Nazi power - and uncovers a trail more thrilling than anyone could have imagined...

Review by wyvernfriend
Although it could have done with some harsh editing, this isn't a bad read, lagging in places when the author felt a need to pass on some of the historical facts to the audience so almost losing my interest a few times by the end though it had me firmly gripped by the story and I really did want to know if some of the characters survived.Better written in many ways than the Da Vinci Code and there's a blurb from the Mirror that suggests crossing Indiana Jones with the Da Vinci Code and getting this book. It spans the Atlantic going from Iona to Greenland to Canada to Mexico to Instanbul to Rome and sometimes the galloping pace almost left me behind. Still a good thriller.
