What makes a man love metals more than anything else in the world? What makes a man lose all sense of moral perspective when he is on the trail of mineral wealth? What makes a man throw love away for something a women can't understand. Hammond Innes supplies the answer in one word: Excitement. In this spell binding story he tells of a mining engineer who commits every known crime - including murder - in his relentless search for the precious metal.
A thriller which tells of George Farnell's legacy, which came to light ten years after his disappearance. Two lines of poetry and a lump of mineral ore were all he left, yet they were enough to send Bill Gansert into a maze of ambition and treachery.
