F4 strafing runs, assassin attacks, the murderous rage of a rebel army commander, pygmy-led jungle death marches – what won’t Steel endure to find the treasure of the infamous General Yamashita, the Tiger of Malay? U.S. Air Force Captain William Steel is on the hunt for billions in gold and precious gems. Nothing stands between him and the hidden fortune – except for the rugged Philippine jungle; a psychotic pedophile with a mysterious and murderous vendetta against Steel; sexy bar girls after his cash; one lusty Filipina journalist after his heart; and Steel’s own team, a rag-tag band of Negrito pygmy tribesmen whose legendary tracking skills turn up trouble as often as treasure. Set on and around Clark Air Base in the 1980s, Steel’s Treasure is a thriller adventure, mystery, and work of military historical fiction that weaves Nick Auclair’s experiences as an intelligence officer with firsthand accounts of the war between the New People’s Army and the American-backed Marcos regime. Follow Steel as he risks his career, his freedom, and ultimately his life to uncover the legendary plunder of WWII General Yamashita, the Tiger of Malay.Über den Autor:
