With the threat of an explosive device orbiting around the world, ready to create havoc on alternative energy research and the city of London itself, they try to untangle the research notes left by Sarah’s ex-husband together. This is a mission that will take them through the Arctic Circle, from London to Australia and back again, as they chase the bomb and unravel the truth; but the bomb is ticking fast and time is running out.
White Gold (Dan Taylor) is a fast-paced ecological thriller that will make readers hold their breath as they turn the pages. As the main protagonists chase the bomb that will change the future of alternative energy research and the city of London forever, we realize that this is a case of terrorism that aims to influence world economics by manipulating prevailing market forces. There is a lot of technical information in Rachel Amphlett’s novel that deals with environmental activism, but it is presented in such a way that it is easy to understand. The characters are well rounded and interesting and for those who like love stories, there is a subtle touch of romance that heightens the tension in the story. There have been many thrillers coming out in the market today and, from time to time, we find one that completely catches our attention. White Gold is certainly one of them!
