First part of the book was a decent caper story with an element of comedy. However, by the end of the story, where was a rather strange shift in tone, and some of the plot points just didn't add up. A rather unsatisfying ending. This book just doesn't compare at all to Westheimer's classic "Von Ryan's Express."

Some years back I read David Westheimer's "Avila Gold", a terrific tale about two college professors one adventuresome, and other scholarly and mild mannered. The mild mannered one comes across a map that identifies the site of buried treasure in the heart of Los Angeles. It is in a relatively well-populated shopping area, but getting to it and actually digging it up is highly problematic. One of the professors, a geologist, if memory serves, inserts a pole in the earth and comes up with a centuries old Spanish coin. The property is city owned, so they decide to rent a vacant store across the street and from there tunnel under the street and the property until they reach the location of the treasure. It's a summer project, they construct a tunnel, and are eventually spotted by suspicious crooks while haulng large quantities of dirt out of the store. In finding the treasure, the mild mannered professor becomes obsessed and dangerous, while in a role reversal his adventuresome partner attempts to keep him under control. On locating the treasure they are robbed by the criminals, a man and a pretty woman. The mild mannered professor turns violent and vicious at the notion they are about to lose the gold. He kills one of the robbers during a bizarre sequence of events leading to the conclusion. The adventuresome professor is greatly disturbed by the personality shift of his partner. It's a classic story of what a treasure hunt can do to essentially decent people, much like the evolution of the characters in the "Treasure of the Sierra Madre."
