About Tim Nichol

Born Arthur Nichol but known as Tim by his many friends in his adopted hometown, San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico, the author of Mayan Gold was a British-born seaman who traveled the world on commercial vessels as well as his own boats. He had begun writing about his adventures and had drawn on several years’ research and experiences on the southeastern coast of Mexico to create a thriller based in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. A few short weeks after finishing the novel, Tim died New Year’s Eve, 2009, in a Hermosillo, Mexico hospital. But Mayan Gold will live on as an e-book published by Tim’s friends.

Living in Mexico, but in the North, this book has made me want to travel south. A very interesting fast moving romance,mystery and history. Well done Tim sorry I never met you, as you must have been a very colourfu and interesting person.

Review by: Robert Hilton on April 29, 2010 :
A well crafted action story that takes brief time outs to teach valuable historical and cultural facts that add depth to the story. Not your everyday mindless thriller. I am very sad we won't be reading Tim's works anymore

Fans of James Rollins should enjoy. Good plot and lots of action. Very visual descriptions - enough to keep me out of any jungles in the future.
