While the pursuit of gold is the focus of much adventure fiction, Hart makes the real-life pursuit just as exciting, tracing gold throughout the modern world from mines to vaults and many other places. David Drummond's narration adds to the intrigue with a deep, reverberating voice that grabs listeners' attention. Drummond provides strong emphasis and good pacing throughout the production while also managing to smoothly pronounce a range of foreign words without hesitation. He avoids injecting too much personality or even accents into quotes, which helps to hold listeners' focus. Drummond's performance keeps Hart's nonfiction alive even as it gets get a little too dry for the layperson. L.E. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014]
