Sim Atkins, Overseas Division agent, returns to Earth, having saved the Moon base from a deadly terrorist plot (see Rose Gold). All Sim can think about is finding the criminals responsible.
But his fury and lust for revenge are put on hold when a nuclear warhead is stolen by Terra Former leader Matthias Larsson. Can Sim and his colleagues track down the terrorist cell and disarm the device in time?
White Gold is the gripping finale in the compellingly original Gaia Trilogy, page-turning thrillers that provoke as well as excite.
Review White Gold by Fany Van Hemelen:
A fast paced thriller about spies, terrorists and an interesting ecological theme!
What a fast and intriguing ride at the world and space with action, tension and twists!
When I read the blurb (Synopsis) I was appealed by the action and sci-fi feel. A different world set on 2034, with a new James Bond- team and a father looking for vengeance for his dead son, yes, that sounded exciting.
Actually, after closing this book I still am happy to escape from reality with this thriller.
I know this is the last part in a series but I read it as a stand-alone.
White Gold is a compelling story and it is a hell of a ride at a hopefully, not realistic future. Of course, it is a great spy story to read, but besides that it uses ecological questions in a gritty and vivid world. Even though the focus lies on the search for the terrorists by the Division Organisation, it is about more than just saving the world.
The actual climate theme, the abuse of power by important people, the control by terrorists and the interesting and varied characters are making this book more than just a great thriller.
Sim, the agent and father, who is trying to take vengeance and also would like to protect his planet has to decide what he chooses for and the trip to that decision is the reason I couldn’t put the book down anymore.
White Gold is a well-plotted book full of action and themes that make me think about how our earth will be in the upcoming years.
