Intelligence is Sam’s only weapon in this enthralling fish-out-of-water jungle adventure
People told me I’d never get a job in exploration geology because I’m a woman. It’s 1987 and I thought that sort of attitude went out with the Arc. More fool me. Just when I suspected they might be right, I met Mike Morton, a notoriously flaky entrepreneur, who offered me work in Sierramar on South America’s west coast. He can’t afford to pay me, but he’s offered me shares in his company. I know the chance of a pay-out is slim, but the experience on my resume will be priceless.
During my first weeks in Sierramar, I’ve improved my Spanish and I’ve made friends with a nutty rich girl who drives like Fangio. I’ve even met a real-life treasure hunter. I’m off to the jungle soon to start my geology career and have an adventure. My companion’s a bit creepy, but I’ll cope, and who knows what we might discover?
Can I trust my colleagues, or will my first adventure have a fatal conclusion?
If you like a well written yarn with intelligent female protagonists, exotic locations, and complex characters, then you’ll love PJ Skinner’s enthralling adventure.
