Golden Eights is a work of fiction in the military thriller, action/adventure, and historically-based fiction sub-genres, and was penned by author Nigel Seed. The work is intended for an adult reading audience and contains some moderate references to sexual situations and wartime conditions. Based on events that occurred in 1940, this work is the second in the Jim Wilson series, and our titular protagonist is on the hunt for some precious missing gold that the British government wants to be returned. What results is a thrilling adventure tale that is sure to keep readers intrigued and engrossed throughout for its surprising twists and vivid historical atmosphere.

Author Nigel Seed has crafted a detailed work of fiction that interweaves real history so seamlessly that it begins to feel like fact, and this second-in-series novel is all the more thrilling for it. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was the atmospheric background of the Second World War, and how it informs the plot and settings but doesn’t dominate the individual mission of Major Jim Wilson and his two closest allies. As a Brit myself, I also really appreciated the attention to detail in the places visited and the true flavor of England, which comes through vividly in the dialogue and descriptive language used. The pacing and level of thrills in the plot also move at a great pace to build tension and keep readers turning pages. Overall, I would highly recommend Golden Eights to fans of military mysteries, thrilling adventure tales, and good old fashioned heroes everywhere.
