Publisher's Summary

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, and he must use all of his brilliance and expertise to find her and absolve himself.
Anwar Adham has plans for a terrorist action on US 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 was hooked at the idea of Vikings roving all the way to Colorado, and the action and adventure never stopped. Does this make it speculative fiction? And I rubbed my hands with glee over the issues involving one of the feds (skirting the spoiler problem here). In fact, the only problem I had was a vignette at the beginning that was never really addressed later on. Otherwise it was a real brain grabber.
Loved Richard Reiman's audio interpretation of the plethora of male characters, it was a tough task, but he really aced it!
I requested and received this audio free from the publisher, author, or narrator courtesy of AudioBookBOOM.

Nice story

The book started out a little disjointed with things happening to different people in different places and there wasn't a clear main character for awhile. The pace was steady after the main character was established and the events began to tie together. The narration was good but the soothing voice of narrator had my mind drifting at times. Over all it was a good listen.
