Authors In Your Pocket Show 12/14/06 David Angsten, Dark Gold

Featuring David Angsten, the Los Angeles screenwriter and video director whose debut thriller DARK GOLD, was published this summer by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press. David is also a senior story analyst and editor for Atchity Entertainment International in Los Angeles. David grew up in Hinsdale, and worked for years in Chicago writing, directing and producing travel films, documentaries, animations, and dramatic shorts.

Synopsis: Three college buddies, two ravishing shipmates, a wealthy yachtsman (and plenty of Mexican tequila) combine and combust in this thrilling tale of a search for sunken treasure—and survival against an awesome creature of the sea. After graduating college, Jack Duran and his two best friends, Rock and Duff, are looking forward to a carefree trip around the globe—a last stab at freedom before tackling the “real world.” But when Jack’s vagabond brother, Dan, vanishes in Mexico, they head off instead for Puerto Vallarta on a mission to find him. Following Dan’s trail of shady dealings, and fueled by a potent Mexican tequila, they soon join forces with a Bahamian yachtsman—a charismatic eccentric with a mysterious past—and become hopelessly enamored with his two enticing shipmates. Sailing down the jungle-covered coast of Mexico, they discover that Dan was searching for a 19th-century shipwreck reputedly laden with gold. When they finally locate the sunken wreck in the bay of a remote fishing village, they enter its eerie, black waters and begin their hunt for the treasure.
