Publisher's 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....

Was this a real Wilbur Smith book?

I have read Wilbur smith books for over 40 years but I am not convinced this book was really written by him. I haven't read any of his recent stories since he killed off Taita's character after that River God trilogy or the amazing Courtney or Ballantyne series and gut feel tells me he has just
become a brand name.

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.

Masterful

As always, Wilbur Smith brings his characters to life and builds momentum in the story superbly. His story telling is excellent and keeps the reader enthralled right to them very end
