Publisher's Summary

The greatest gold discovery in history draws a young Charles Knight to West Africa, where he unearths deception, violence, and romance. Xander Winn - a Dutchman on his own mission - mentors Charles on his voyage into the world of speculation and African politics. But a psychopathic rebel leader, the purveyors of a six-billion-dollar fraud, a team of mercenaries bent on early retirement, and the US government all get in his way. Everyone wants him dead. But Charles plans to strike it rich.

    Story
    "Fantastic story and great narrator!"

    This book definitely exceeded my expectations. I love how well it blended deep economic and political themes with rich characters and a lot of action and intrigue. It was both entertaining and educational all the way to the end.

    Sex, guns, gold, politics, money, and most importantly, great philosophy!.....what's not to like?

    I've listened to a lot of books on audible, but this is the first one that I was truly sad when it was finished. I can't wait for the next one.

    Props to the narrator too, I never had to guess what character was speaking. Multi-accent, multi-tone, great job!

    Highly recommend to everyone, but I think freedom loving/liberty minded individuals/investors who reject collectivism will enjoy it most!

    Cheers!

    "Speculator entertains and makes you think"

    Great story. Very hard to put down.
    The characters were all exceedingly well described and I am really in a hurry to see where the author goes with them, as the series continues.
    Please don't make us wait too long Mr. Casey.
    You have a great talent for describing the world that exists beneath the perceptions of those who think that reading the newspaper is the way to know what is going on in the world.
