Summary

It's 1970s London, and Glaswegian Colin Grant is finally free. After four years at Her Majesty's Pleasure, he needs to make up for lost time. But when his firm's next robbery goes badly wrong, he knows it's time to move on - fast.

In Africa, Colin finds a new way of life and new friends. But, as he soon discovers, it's a land of unbelievable and almost irresistible riches. And all he has to do is work out how to fly a planeload of gold out of the country without anyone - especially Major Judas Akaba - finding out.

Worth a listen

What did you like best about this story?

Great story even if factually questionable in some parts (Kotoka Airport to Cape Coast in an hour?)

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Joe Dunlop brings good dramatisation to the work and can perhaps be forgiven for coming unhinged at the pronunciation of local nouns. He gets 3 stars for making certain characters sound Vietnamese/Thai instead of Ghanaian

Any additional comments?

all round, time and money well spent on this book.

Very enjoyable, surprize ending.

What did you love best about Ashanti Gold?

Written from the 'criminals' view point.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Surprised, but on reflection it could have had a stronger ening.

What about Joe Dunlop’s performance did you like?

The various accents.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
