The adventure begins in the first Dan Kotler archaeological thriller!
An ancient medallion is unearthed in Pueblo, Colorado, revealing a secret that will rewrite the history of North America—the Vikings somehow made it to the continent's interior, centuries before Columbus made landfall, and there they built a city of gold.
But today the COELHO MEDALLION has been stolen, and a linguist and researcher has been abducted in connection with the crime. Could the abductors be after the fabled city of gold? Or do they have a more sinister plot in mind?
DAN KOTLER is an independent researcher who often finds himself in more trouble than he was expecting. But when his colleague is abducted he finds himself being investigated by the FBI, he must use all of his brilliance and expertise to find her and absolve himself.
ANWAR ADHAM has plans for a terrorist action on U.S. soil, and information from the Pueblo research site can give him everything he needs to put his plans in motion. Unless Adham is stopped, thousands and possibly millions will die.
Whoever wins this contest of wits and wills will hold the fate of thousands in his hands, and will also lay claim to the fabled city of gold.
It's an adventure that can redefine the history of America as we know it. Kotler finds himself facing off against both the FBI and Adham's terrorist network as he struggles to solve the mystery of Vikings in Colorado, to rescue Evelyn and stop Adham's plans before it's too late.

I received this audiobook from the publishers via Netgalley for a review. A thrilling read, fast paced good character's with an ancient mystery worth a read. Excellent narration that keeps you listening.
Reading The Coelho Medallion’s blurb had me hook, line, and sinker. Adding to that, being familiar with Pueblo, Colorado, I couldn’t resist wanting to read this one. Interesting characters, interesting plot, good pace... that being said, I overall enjoyed listening to the audio version, which also had an animated and believable narrator. Although the ending was all tidied up to a somewhat satisfying conclusion, I felt disappointment at the end for some reason. That is not due to a flaw or fault with the book’s author, but most likely due to my own expectations. 4 Stars My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an AAC of this publication in exchange for a my honest opinion.
Received as an audio review copy from NetGalley; narrated by Joe Hempel, this is an honest review. This is an amazing, harrowing journey that involves a unique medallion that holds the potential to upend what is the "known" history of North America itself. And Dan Kotler and fellow colleague Evelyn find themselves embroiled one man's deep and reckless obsession with the medallion, a mysterious city of gold and a personal revenge steering the haunting journey. A very emotional story, gritty and engaging; wonderfully narrated by Joe Hempel that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Highly recommended.
