Ordered by the avaricious King Charles to accompany O’Dwyer to Africa and unearth the gold, Quinton sets sail for the Gambia.
Dogged by misfortune, with sabotage and murder darkening the mission, Quinton discovers Montnoir is on his trail. The race for gold will put everything at risk… Can Quinton emerge in one piece?
