Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679451617, Audio Cassette)

For Jonathon Blair, a mining engineer and explorer, the color and rigors of the Dark Continent are far more suitable than the foggy drizzle of his home in Wigan, Lancashire. When he returns from Africa's Gold Coast in 1872, he finds England utterly depressing and turns to drink to ease his melancholy. His patron, a Bishop and mine owner, agrees to send him back if he can clear up the mysterious disappearance of a local curate engaged to marry his daughter. As he sleuths around the cultured homes of Wigan, through ill-cobbled alleys and into the depths of the mines, he meets the alluring Rose Malyneaux. Used to relying on himself, Blair finds that Rose's instincts provide more answers than he could have hoped for.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:08 -0400)

An American travels to a town in the darkest part of England to solve the disappearance of a young cleric who was engaged to the daughter of a mine owner.
