Golden Eights Trailer


Nigel Seed's second book is as good as his first. The three ex-Royal Engineers (Jim, Ivan and Geordie) are back; this time, trying to recover the UK's mislaid gold reserves. Their adventure takes them to many places in England; and those which I know well are described very accurately. The twists, turns and surprises keep coming - right to the very last pages. This author has me hooked now and I'll definitely be looking out for his next book. His plots are excellent and I like the way he sets out the historical basis for his stories at the end of each book.

Jim Wilson

Major James Grant Wilson, normally known as Jim, was until very recently a highly capable combat officer in the Royal Engineers. An intelligent and inspiring leader he has always generated intense loyalty from his tough, no nonsense, soldiers. He is also famous in many parts of the British Army for being able to recognise any scotch whisky by taste and smell. A talent that has earned him many savage hangovers as the soldiers of his company have tried to fool him. Tall and well-built, he has a scar across his chin that aches when it is cold and reminds him of Afghanistan. Unusually for an engineering officer, he has a fear of enclosed spaces, which started when he was trapped in a mine accident, while his father was showing him around, although he has managed to control this over the years.

A thrilling read!

This is the second novel I have read by Nigel Seed and he continues to impress and satisfy his readers with round rounded characters and solid story lines.

In this book, Major Wilson (introduced in V4), and his team, go on a mission to find the gold hidden by the British during WWII.

As with V4, this book has a lot of action and twists and turns and surprises.

I look forward to reading more of his work in the future.
