The Gold House trilogy, published by Soledad Publishing, LLC, in three volumes: The Discovery by John Clarence with Tom Whittle, The Lies, The Thefts by John Clarence and Tom Whittle, and Executive Order by John Clarence with Tom Whittle.
In three volumes, The Gold House presents adventure, intrigue, murder, deepest politics—and billions of dollars of gold. After a cursory glance at the index and certain key pages, I was hooked, unable to close the covers of this unique treasure hunt, the homicides and the abuses of power. The trail of witnesses and paper and gold extractions seems never to end. In other words, the evidence is overwhelming, a monumental gathering of the facts and the presentation of those facts by John Clarence and Tom Whittle; America is greatly benefited by these two men. The Gold House presents enough polygraph exams, bank records, warehouse receipts and much more, more than enough to take to a jury, and win. LBJ’s lawyers had a secret trove of his corruption, in the penthouse files, locked away in their bank in downtown Austin. Surprisingly, the records were still there at the end of 2011. They should be recovered, uncovered and disclosed.
The profound service to America of The Gold House trilogy takes on its own special value. An excellent adventure, a source of gold owed America, and a further uncovering of abusive government practices.
The authors say it best: ‘A story of the erosion of the rule of law by our government leaders and the attack on our freedoms in America.’ Thank you, John Clarence. Thank you, Tom Whittle. … Hollywood cannot be far behind.”

“They say America operates on the Golden Rule––those who have the gold, make the rules. Nowhere does this old bromide hold more true than in The Gold House trilogy by John Clarence and Tom Whittle detailing the criminal activities that culminated in the theft of tons of gold from southern New Mexico. This astounding and disturbing story moves the reader from a gold strike in the 1930s through a 1949 murder and on into the highest levels of the U.S. Government.”
Jim Marrs, journalist and New York Times Best Selling author
“This is an amazingly detailed account of decades of material about one of the Old West's best treasure tales, and will make the reader want to know how it turns out. The secrecy of the Army missile base, and the access a few people had to the gold in the middle of a desert mountain range, is a real treasure tale worthy of a Hollywood movie.”
Jackson Polk, Documentary Filmmaker and Host, The El Paso History Show
“ The Gold House trilogy is the most thorough probe to date on the 75-year-old lost-treasure mystery that has consumed the family of the late Doc Noss. The Gold House takes the legend way beyond two earlier books, several "Unsolved Mysteries"-style TV features, and countless magazine and newspaper articles done on Victorio Peak in the past 75 years. It’s an outrageous tale to be sure, but then so was Watergate and the White House Plumbers' dirty tricks. ”
Orange Country Register
The Gold House trilogy is a tour de force of research and reporting. Meticulously researched and explosive in the revelations it uncovers. This is an account of a onetime hidden gold treasure in a cave at Victorio Peak, located at today's White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. Drawing on more than a decade of government documents and personal interviews the authors uncovered information that will require scholars and commentators of modern U.S. political history to reevaluate the presidencies of Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon.
For example, both of these presidents personally coveted this vast fortune estimated at billions of dollars in gold bars and valuable Conquistador artifacts at Victorio Peak. In March 1968 President Johnson announced that he would not seek re-election but rather dedicate himself to a quest for peace in Southeast Asia. His abdication from the presidential campaign, which he would have won handily, had nothing to do with peace in Southeast Asia. Johnson wanted to be free of the Oval Office in order to concentrate on removing the gold to his ranch in Mexico. The gold fever that struck President Nixon and the machinations he engaged in to raid the Victorio Peak riches shunted the Watergate scandal aside as little more than a sophomoric romp by comparison”

It would be impossible to conjure up a more detailed, irrefutable and shocking account of greed, corruption, deceit and mortiferous behavior permeating the highest offices of our government. Even senior military commanders set aside military ethos as their quest for illicit gold trumps the pillars of duty, honor, country.
The disturbing truth of The Gold House is that this story is not the product of a fanciful imagination; it is the painstaking compilation and presentation of colossal antiquities theft, covert meetings, surreptitious financial transactions, and cover-ups conducted with the acquiescence and active participation of former sitting Presidents of the United States of America.
The Gold House trilogy is a jaw-dropping, mountainous achievement and treasure trove exposé that usurps all other conspiracy stories of our time.”
