Summary

In Gold Mine, an exciting adventure from Wilbur Smith, ambitious and hard-living mining expert Rod Ironsides knows that the general managership of the Sonder Ditch gold mine is the chance of a lifetime. But the price of unquestioning obedience to the coldly obsessive genius of Dr Manfred Steyner proves impossible to pay. Both men are but unwitting tools of powerful people - for whom the control of a gold mine is only part of a dangerous plan which includes the destruction of the very mine itself....

1960s Smith Epic

While not as grand or sweeping as many Smith novels still a pleasant listen and read.

Great author, amazing narrator

What more is necessary? If you've never read books by Wilbur Smith, you're in for a treat. And honestly, I didn't realize it at first, but Mr. Noble is able to breathe life into his characters. The accents are stunningly well done.
