Viking Gold
by A. Jay Collins

Using unscrupulous methods, a pair of Danish rogues gain control of an ill-equipped and cash-poor mining company. It owns an abandoned underground mine on the barren south coast of Newfoundland that still hosts quality gold but cannot convince the market to financially support rejuvenation. The pair intend to strip out as much of the high-grade gold remaining and ship it off-shore for processing, as they did on a similar project in Greenland. A powerful Russian oligarch, with murky motives, arranges a multi-million-dollar loan, based on lies, for the Danes to re-activate the mine, and build a processing plant they don’t actually intend to build. Instead, the Russian and the Danes keep the loans for themselves, as well as the revenue from the sale of the gold. It's another billion-dollar heist. Just like their previous “venture” on the southern tip of Greenland, they intend to mine as fast as possible, leaving Newfoundland with nothing but a toxic mess. Led by saboteur Matthew Black, ORB - the Organization for Restructuring Business - has to stop the Russian and the Danes, control their cash flow, divert money back to the original lenders, and put all three out of business. Their tactics include sabotaging the mine, their barges, and their mega-yachts. As ORB goes to great lengths to sabotage the thieves, the gold hangs in the balance. Will ORB succeed in stopping the rogues? Will the financier be left in the lurch, again? Or will ORB be able to put a stop to their nefarious plans once and for all?

Now retired, Collins enjoys writing, playing guitar, going for walks, and sailing when he can. He lives just outside Vancouver, B.C., with his wife, Judy, and their Sheepadoodle, Lily.
