“If you love Carl Hiassen, Nevada Barr or Jon Krakauer, you'll love this great adventure fiction work by exciting new author Vic Warren.”—Seattle Librarian,

“If one wants to follow a captivating couple pursue their careers in exotic climes brilliantly described, Stairway of the Gods is just the right way to do it. The book would also probably make a terrific film.”—Gordon Osmond,

Buried treasure, high adventure, and romance. These are the key ingredients that make Vic Warren’s new novel, STAIRWAY OF THE GODS—a page-turner.

Explorers and treasure hunters have speculated on whether the story of World War II Japanese officer, General Tomoyuki Yamashita’s buried treasure in the Philippines is myth or truth. Warren takes this premise and turns it into riveting fiction. His main characters are peppered with Bogie and Bacall-ish style; other characters are a reflection of the local culture.

“Many of the characters in the book are like the Filipino people I have been close to all my life—warm and hospitable—with a deep sense of camaraderie for their neighbors,” said Warren. “I have many friends in the Filipino community who I have seen help their neighbors when they are in need.”
