The Last Ancient is a standalone novel by author Eliot Baker. Nantucket Island is being peppered with brutal crime scenes with ancient gold coins left at each scene. Journalist Simon Stephenson must unlock the secrets and their links to a disease epidemic that is also sweeping the deer population. He must battle his own demons as well as his past and more deadly foes in order to unlock the mystery.
This was certainly an interesting and multi layered conspiracy thriller although at the same time not typical of the historical/archaeological type that you would normally see in the genre. Read the full review here
