The Elymais Coin

A Private Investigator must stop the Elymais Coin from being used as part of a subversive plot against the United States - from its most vulnerable point - the presidency.

A wealthy coin collector hires Cy Lane to find and return the 3000-year-old Elymais coin but Cy finds he isn't the only one seeking its possession. He first encounters a  shadowy Middle Easterner, then, a beautiful Russian woman who offers aid in obtaining the coin for a price. Appearance of a member of the Russian Maffia requires them to use a circuitous route to Europe where  the shadowy Middle Easterner reappears and a murder complicates the search. The chase then follows a rabidly anti-Muslim bishop's acolyte to Andora and Morocco where al Qaida and the CIA become involved. Then, eventually, it moves to Mexico and finally back to the United States where Cy discovers that even the United States Attorney General  wants the coin.

Professional Reviews

The Elymais Coin
MBR:MBRBookwatch, Janurary 2009 Shelly’s Bookshelf, Shelley Glodowski, Senior Reviewer, MIDWEST BOOK Reviews.)
“Manhold is knowledgeable of not only Mideastern politics and geography, but also of world geography. His tale is not so much suspenseful as is a "chase" surrounding the coin, with lots of lovely descriptions of various locations, restaurants, and food. Bravo!

The Elymais Coin
Reader Reviews (, William Phenn, reviewer)
“The Elymais Coin by John H. Manhold was written well, had good character development and was a fast-paced adventure…descriptions of the foreign towns and surrounding areas were quite detailed, right down to the local fare at the restaurants. I enjoyed the read and gave it an A on my proverbial scale. I would recommend it to all that enjoy a James Bond thriller which is a little more like the real world.”

The Elymasi Coin
Amazon 5 –star review Amazon (Melvin Kligman of Sarasota, FL, USA.)
“The Elymais Coin” unfolds like a well-constructed Chinese Puzzle revealing depths of research and insight into ancient history and our 9/11 world…(and) demonstrates the amazing versatility of Manhold’s writing style but contains the same hallmark attention to authenticity & research as his earlier novel “El Tigre”. I would highly recommend “The Elymais Coin”
