When Shane is offered the chance to buy some outstanding antique Celtic gold, Risa senses that something very wrong is at work. This gold has a history, and it's filled with darkness and death. As they seek to discover the origins of the mysterious gold, people begin dying all around them. And someone is trying to destroy the empire that Shane has built over the years.
