The Sage

Adventurers search for lost Spanish treasure in Panama, and after finding it, they must first transport it back to their ship without arousing suspicion and then decide how far they are willing to go to protect their find.

For over two centuries, Spain transported treasure looted from Peru by mule train through the jungle across the Isthmus of Panama to the galleons waiting on the Atlantic side. Attacked by pirates and Indians alike, at least one treasure-laden mule train never made it, and over time the ever-powerful jungle hid its remains - until some adventurers sail to Panama on the SAGE, their expeditionary ship, to search the jungle for the lost Spanish treasure. Finding the treasure is hard enough, but their problems multiply when they uncover 10 tons of gold and silver. How can they cart it out of the jungle and back to their ship without arousing suspicion? And faced with the ultimate moral challenge, the crew must decide on just how far they are willing to go to protect their find. Their decision leads to dramatic life-threatening consequences. The Sage is an adventure you do not want to miss! 

 
 
Excerpt
"Gold is there if you know where to find it," snorted the old salt, noticing that Eddie was listening. "Never been a landlubber. Spent half my life as an AB and I'd sail tomorrow if given the chance. But who wants to hire a barnacled old tar like me? I should have courted the gold, but it was easier to marry the sea."
The old man pulled a battered briar pipe from his pocket and began the ritual of filling and lighting it. Catching a whiff of the rich aromatic tobacco, Eddie moved over to the empty stool next to the old man.
"What kind of gold are you talking about?" Eddie asked.
The old man turned to Eddie and paused a mo­ment to size him up. Seeing the interest on Eddie's face, he chuckled and drained his glass. Catching the eye of the bartender, Eddie signaled for two more beers.
With obvious relish, the old man gulped down half a glass. After wiping the foam from his reddish gray moustache and drawing a couple of puffs on his pipe, the old man slowly shook his head.
"I never went prospecting or tried finding sunken Spanish ships - too costly and too often it's a waste of your time and effort. You need investors for those kind of ventures and then you have to share your find when you did all the work. Nope, there's easier ways of getting gold, especially if you know where to look."


Professional Reviews

Rodrigo M. Mulas
Highly enjoyable!

A very interesting plot that leads the characters through the jungles of Panama in search of a lost Spanish treasure...what more can you ask for?????

My compliments to the author for his narrative skills that take us with great precision through the complicated set of emotions that the search party goes through in their quest.

Also exceptional in the descriptions of Panama. I'm sure the Panama Tourism Office will surely appreciate it.

A must for readers in search of a good adventure - don't miss it.


Sandra T. Snyder
Robert knows Panama history and this historical mystery novel will keep you on the edge of your chair. Follow his characters from San Diego to Panama, cut their way through the jungle and finally transit the Panama Canal in their quest for Spanish gold. A thoroughly good read

Susanna Frost
The author uses his knowledge about Panama's early history and the Panama Canal to tell a great story. Anyone who enjoys reading adventure and action will enjoy this book.
As I was reading I could feel the heat and humidity of the jungles of Panama. If you've ever lived in Panama you'll appreciate it even more!
It also made me wonder if there really could be some treasure waiting in the jungle to be discovered...
