  • Copies Currently On Shelf:

Deep underground in the Eureka mine, South Africa's zama zamas illegally hunt for gold. King of this brutal underworld is Wellington Shumba - a man who rules his pirate miners through fear of torture and death. Running Eureka's legitimate operation is former recce commando Cameron McMurtrie. When one of his engineers is taken hostage, Cameron does not hesitate to mastermind a dramatic rescue - and finish it off with a manhunt for Wellington. That is until corporate interference from the mine's Australia head office, in the shape of ambitious high-flyer Kylie Hamilton, gets in his way. Doctor Hamilton is visiting South Africa supposedly to finalise a new mine on the border of the famed Kruger National Park, but instead she and Cameron are forced into a partnership to fend off an environmental war above ground, and a deadly battle with a ruthless killer below. Cameron and Kylie have become Wellington's prey. They must unite - their lives depend on it. When a group of illegal miners - men with nothing to lose, led by a man intent on destroying Cameron - kidnap one of Global Resources' employees, Cameron is forced into action - and collaboration. In such tense circumstances, Kylie and Cameron find that their mutual dislike evolves into solidarity, perhaps even something more. If they work together there is a chance they can save the kidnapped man.
