     In July of 2012, Celtic coins over two thousand years old and valued at sixteen million dollars were found on an island off the coast of France. Learning of the discovery, amateur treasure hunters, Mick and Joelle Scott, begin their research. Believing that they might find additional Celtic treasures in the same area, they decide to travel to western France.

      At the same time, Marcus Demetrius, a wealthy shipping mogul who believes he is related to Julius Caesar, becomes obsessed with acquiring the same antiquities. He will stop at nothing, including murder to obtain the treasure he desires. 

     Demetrius’s associates begin sending death threats and the Scott family soon realize that they are all in danger. After a kidnapping takes place, Interpol, an International Criminal Police Organi-zation, gets involved. A complex double-cross is planned that will lure Demetrius into the open, but not without placing the Scott family more deeply into danger.

     Will they find more Celtic treasure that has been hidden for over two thousand years? What ancient secrets will be revealed? In this fast-paced novel by DC Johnston, the Mick Scott Adventure begins.

Sacred Gold will be the second book in the Mick Scott Adventure series and will debut in late 2016.  

     Mick and Joelle are back again hunting for lost treasure. This time in the deserts of Arizona.  Follow my progress in crafting the story as I post photos and updates.  Enjoy!
