Buried just outside Tejon, California, the ancient booty is rigged with enough booby traps to send would-be fortune hunters into early retirement-or the grave. But Perry is no mere fortune hunter.

Something that will change the world-and could cost Perry his life.

Promises more than it delivers  Apr 9, 2008
"A Treasure Deep" got me interested from the very start and kept me interested for a while. Perry Sachs tries to save a man from being killed, and finds an ancient document in the process. He then goes to California to find a treasure. The small town mayor, Anne, gets suspicious and wants to know what he's looking for, but Sachs is very secretive. At first, this is intriguing, but after a while it became more annoying to not know what our heroes are looking for. Halfway through the book, Perry lets most of his associates in on the secret. They are obviously thrilled, but the reader is still kept in the dark. This might have worked, if Gansky had provided us with enough suspense to keep us interested, but unfortunately, after the opening sequence, there is very little suspense until the last 80 pages or so. Instead, too much time is spent on character development on a minor character (Anne), all in a rather preachy fashion.

Gansky's writing is good for the most part, except for contrived sentences like "Light danced through the liquid like carefree nymphs skipping through a pond in a European forest". Towards the end, the action picks up again, but the climax is disappointing. Everything is solved, not by our heroes, but by the clumsiness of one of the villains.

All in all, the book was somewhat entertaining, but promised more than it delivered.
And now, "A Treasure Deep", by Alton Gansky.  Jul 27, 2005
Well, I picked up this with some anticipation, and in an anxious manner, both good and bad. Gansky is an incredible author, that's not to be debated. But the last book I read by him, I wasn't too impressed. His 3rd J.D. Stanton novel, "Out of Time" wasn't my favorite. But I was really hoping that this would redeem the Senior Pastor and author, and indeed he showed us once again what makes him great.

This is the beginning of Perry Sachs, an engineer, and his adventures. Well, if you are looking for a page turner, this is worth it! Just imagine a secret! Yeah, one of those, "You aren't qualified to know" type deals, ok? So suppose this effort attracts the Mayor's attention. Could be trouble, right? It might even attract some negative attention. It could get action packed, and it may get bloody at times. Oh yes, this is a treasure, one that you'll share with friends and family, because you don't just keep something this good to yourself!

In saying that, there are some good messages in this. One is to those who have ever blamed God for something. It gives you a certain amount of humility to realize that you shouldn't blame Him, although a lot of us do, myself included. There is nothing He can't handle, and nothing He can't forgive. Anne Fitzgerald found that out, and she also found that God's grace is so sweet.

This is just the first of a 3 book series, and I'm hoping that the other 2 pack a punch like this one did!
Good suspense! Imaginative concept!  May 21, 2005
I won't rehash the details of the other reviews, so I'll just say I found the concept of the treasure and its location quite imaginative. I think one thing that happens in the end is sad, but makes a strong point. The characters are varied and interesting with the antagonists and their ruthlessness being ultimately counterproductive to their goal. After the story ended I thought to myself, "Why didn't they just ask?" What exactly am I talking about? To find that out you'll have to ride Mr. Gansky's freight train of suspense and action. From the special savant, Joseph, to the incredibly powerful Alex Olek, you will enjoy this book. The changing relationship between Perry Sachs and the mayor is just one of the interesting character relationships in the book. Give this one a read -- you won't be sorry. I leave you with -- Perry...uhh! :)
Think you've got it figured out? You don't!  Mar 16, 2004
This is the type of novel that keeps me coming back to Alton Gansky's work. When you think you finally see where this is going (ala Kevin Bowen's "Wil's Bones" or Paul Maier's "Skeleton in God's Closet"), you're wrong! The storyline keeps a fairly consistent pace throughout. You'll come up with a dozen theories as to what the "Treasure" in the title is, but by the end you'll realize you weren't even close. I highly recommend this novel as an example of what Mr. Gansky can do when he's "on". If this is your first experience with his work, then follow it up with "The Prodigy" or "Vanished".
A Treasure Deep by Alton L. Gansky  Jul 30, 2003
I found A Treasure Deep, by Alton L. Gansky, to be a real page-turner. The concept was fresh, the story captivating, and it was truly hard to put down. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced novel.
