Ex-pats can’t help but be curious about novels set in their homeland. So it was only natural for me to be drawn to Dark Gold by Geoff Lynn. This mystery-murder, set in Sydney, Australia, brought an added dimension to my enjoyment of the story, with lots of Aussie lingo, colloquialisms and references to foods I remember fondly. But while all that is good for someone like me, what does Dark Gold have to offer those readers unfamiliar with Australia? Well, to use a very Aussie description, it’s “a darn good yarn!” When a beautiful and  wealthy antique collector tumbles off an eleven-story-high balcony, two homicide detectives have to determine if her fall was an accident or murder. As they dig into Laura Verwood’s present and past contacts, what they find confuses them and complicates the search for a killer…if indeed there is one.

While they try to sort out what happened, a secondary plot is unfolding alongside the murder/mystery. This plot is centered on two young Aussies who are very close friends. These young men share two things in common: their names, Peter, and their love of swimming. When the pair decides to go into business together, offering groups some sport and treasure hunting by deep sea diving, and one of the Peters discovers a rare gold coin from an old shipwreck, both plots thicken and become intertwined. How does this happen? That’s one of the best things about Dark Gold and you will have to read it to find out how well Geoff Lynn ties it all together. Just get ready for lots of action, including sharks, both in and out of the water, along with a fascinating twist in the relationship of the two Peters. What do I mean? Well, read the novel  and you will know. Dark Gold is an enjoyable story with some romance, humorous asides and enough mystery to satisfy anyone who likes to be both entertained and enlightened when they read. Slip it into your backpack on your next trip to Australia.”
