In the Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea, foreign mining companies are competing to mine newly discovered gold fields. Tom Akani, reporter for the Port Moresby Journal, has his eyes opened to incompetence and corruption when mining interests oppose his feature stories about conditions at the Owego gold mine. Anonymous agents hire a gang to threaten his life, his family, and the newspaper. But then his ongoing investigation reveals a plot against the national government itself. Police Inspector Jason Kerro senses a connection between attacks on the newspaper and the disappearance of vast amounts of government money intended for the nation's hospitals and schools. He joins forces with Tom and his team of reporters. But who is behind the attacks, and where is the proof? And can Tom withstand the pressure on his family?
