When a prospecting team from his company is slaughtered in Sudan, a brilliant young geologist is sent to investigate, uncovering an insidious communist plot that only he can stop.
Logan Bechard had barely graduated from Oxford University when he was hired by his uncle’s world-leading mining company, EMco. CEO Sir James Rochester saw his nephew’s immense potential from an early age, becoming a father figure to him after the tragic death of Logan’s own father in a mining accident. It was clear that the young geologist’s pedigree made him perfect for Rochester’s team of hardened specialists, and Bechard quickly proved his worth, devising highly technical methods for the recovery of lucrative minerals and receiving worldwide recognition for his work. With the help of Pierre Charest – his long-time friend and fearless protector – Logan journeys from the frozen coal mines of Siberia to the treacherous rainforests of Africa, ensuring the planet’s precious resources are harvested safely. But when they are sent to look into the massacre of an EMco prospecting team in southern Sudan, they uncover an ominous international plot for Russian world dominance and must join forces with local freedom fighters to prevent chaos from ensuing.
Dmitry Kouzminov, the director of the Russian foreign intelligence service and a hard-line communist, has become increasingly disillusioned with the west after the collapse of his beloved soviet union. As the world clamours for precious industrial minerals, he seizes the opportunity to bring it to its knees with deadly aggression. Enlisting the Janjaweed, a murderous band of executioners raiding the killing fields of Darfur, Kouzminov aims to take control of a critical mineral reserve by deadly force. As Bechard and his team are only too aware, the ransacked mining operation is one of the few places on earth producing a rarefied mineral called ‘molybdenum’ and a communist stranglehold on it would mean untold devastation. As Kouzminov’s malevolent designs on this invaluable resource become clear, Logan and his ragtag team of freedom fighters must wage a ferocious battle for survival.
Atomic Gold is the explosive debut by author Cameron Jacks, and introduces a fearless new hero in Logan Bechard. the reader is thrust headlong into Bechard’s perilous exploits, as he must fight not only for his life but to save the world from a terrifying communist campaign for international dominance. Jacks masterfully blends high-stakes action with poignant real world issues like dwindling fossil fuel supplies and the justice and equality movement which is fighting for south Sudan’s independence against Khartoum’s Islamic state. a thrilling debut with a global awareness and a very contemporary conscience, Atomic Gold makes for the perfect 21st century action-adventure novel.
