White Gold: A totally gripping international thriller (Gaia Trilogy Book 3) by [Barker, David]



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.


White Gold: A totally gripping international thriller (Gaia Trilogy Book 3)


This third and final book in this cracking series runs as smooth from book two as turning onto the next chapter. Sim is returning to Earth from the Moon after his son’s tragic and senseless death and the only thing moving one foot in front of the other for him is the thought of getting hold of who was responsible for this terrorist attack.

This is a full-throttle all-action read with so much going on with all of the main characters. In the last book Freda, Gopal and Rabten had been imprisoned in Russia but early in this book, they manage to break out, with the help of a bit of technology. Their journey is a complicated hide in plain sight plan for Gopal and Rabten but for Freda, whose features just don’t blend in it is a matter of hiding however she can. Now that doesn’t work out too well.

Sim is given something to live for back home but circumstances tare him away from people he loves again. The adrenaline rush has never been greater in this series than it is in the last quarter of the book, as the bad guys are drawn out of the woodwork and exposed. The race across Europe is exceptional with old acquaintances coming together again to form an unstoppable force.

The lengths people will go to for power, wealth and control is terrifying as the world just continues oblivious to it all. A belting end to this slightly futuristic story, with believable technology, and unfortunately believable world leaders too.

Set in 2034 this story isn’t too far into our future but there are plenty of warning signs to take heed of. I hope in reality we get it all together a little better. A brilliant series perfect for reading one after another, that would be epic!

I live in Berkshire with my wife, daughter and three pet rats. I spend half my week travelling into London where I work as chief economist for an international fund, and spend the other half writing at home.

My debut, Blue Gold, was published by Urbane Publications in May 2017 and its sequel, Rose Gold, is scheduled for May 2018.

I attended the Faber Academy How to Write a Novel course in 2014 with the best-selling Ali Land (check out Good Me, Bad Me). And I appear on the Radio Berkshire monthly show Radio Reads with Bill Buckley and Claire Dyer.
