Description

A GATHERING OF GOLD HUNTERS For sixty years rumours raged on Canada's west coast that a large gold cache belonging to the murdered Tsar Nikolas II was lost in a sunken ship. In 1979 when a weekend hunter discovers an ingot in a remote mountain cave it triggers a flurry of international gold seekers. The Tsar's cache of 110 tonnes is worth three billion dollars. Dimitri Komadze, deputy chairman of the dreaded Russian KGB seeks to correct his father's fatal mistake in losing the gold; Alex Plastiras, a disgraced US Marine now working as a mercenary for exiled Romanov interests, launches an airborne unit to get the gold. Then there's Harry Travis a reluctant Canadian Secret Service operative who finds people are not what they seem-in fact some are either ruthless lovers, deadly killers-or both! Colonel Ilya Orlov, a guard's officer with sworn loyalties to a long-dead Tsar, founded a secret community called "Stavka" where the old Russian flag still flies. His beautiful granddaughter, part Russian, part Native Indian, has trained a bald eagle to hunt and kill anyone on demand. As he battles to pursue the treasure Travis discovers there is a dangerous secret hidden with the gold known simply to British and Canadian Intelligence as the "Nikolas Consignment." This historical novel while set in the Canada of 1979 has a storyline weaving through actions in Chile, Sydney Australia, Prague, San Francisco, the Kola Peninsula in Northern Russia and Gori, Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin.show more
