A gripping, intricately-plotted thrill ride vividly set during the fairy-tale autumn of the Bay Bridge World Series and the Loma Prieta earthquake. You'll love the action, the characters, the local color, and the historical detail.
"Vivid and compelling. You can smell the fear, feel the heat, and hear the bedlam of the 1906 earthquake... The Lost Gold isn't just a formula mystery. It's a love letter to a place that Castleman knows intimately and adores." -San Francisco Chronicle. "Michael Castleman views San Francisco with an eye for detail that Herb Caen would envy. If you're looking for a gripping, fun read, you'll strike gold with The Lost Gold." -Jeffrey Klein, The Black Hole Affair. "Castleman is one helluva writer. The Lost Gold is an action-packed mystery with great descriptions, lively dialogue, and a historian's eye for detail at both ends of the twentieth century." -Brian Rouff, Dice Angel.
