Death and fortune-hunting in the jungles of New Guinea.
There is gold hidden somewhere in the jungle, gold which aircraft salvage expert Dave Stark is determined to find. But others are equally determined - and they are willing to resort to sabotage and murder to get to it first.
Surrounded by the harsh beauty of the jungles and jagged peaks of New Guinea, Stark must survive plane crashes, aerial dog-fights, cannibalistic tribes and fierce gun battles, as he follows an obscure trail of clues from the past, in a deadly race to find the lost wartime treasure. But finding the gold is one problem - keeping it is another.
"...Fabulous scenes, wonderful characters, excellent dialogue, a well-constructed adventure peppered with wonderful descriptions. It placed me on the mountain, in the jungle, sweating and suffering with the heroes - good writing." - David Foard, editor/reviewer.
"...An exciting thriller, vivid and exotic. PNG comes intensely alive and Shaw's aeronautical knowledge adds suspense as sharp as a razor. With a plot reminiscent of Wilbur Smith, its action sequences will keep you on the edge of your chair..." - Robert Hood, winner Australian Golden Dagger Award 1988.
"...From beginning to end, this excellent novel is full of action and excitement on literally every page...The intricate and fast-moving plot...moves with such speed that it is hard to put the book down." - David Cooke, reviewer AOPA Magazine.
