About the book: 
An ancient expedition. An epic adventure. An enduring love.
 
After stumbling across records of an ancient gold-seeking expedition to Africa, Con Slaughter – adventurer, prospector, gunfighter – strikes it rich on the Barberton gold fields. But the intrepid American is soon on the move again, fearing a bullet in the back due to his involvement in a plot between England and Germany that could alter the course of history. When Con meets Lorelei, he decides to stop running, but British and German Military Intelligence are gaining on him.
 
From facing the fierce onslaughts of wild animals and witnessing men die unspeakable deaths to becoming embroiled in the Boer War, Con has to live by his wits and courage to navigate and survive the harsh southern African veld.
 
Gold Never Rusts is a sweeping, richly imagined adventure story that draws the reader irresistibly into the action, mystery and passions of a bygone time.
 
Also available in Afrikaans as Goud Kan Nie Roes Nie.

About the Author

Paul-Constant Smit was born in Pretoria. While at the Deutsche Schule Pretoria, his family relocated to Europe for a while, infusing him with a wanderlust that has never waned. He is equally at home spearfishing in the cold Cape waters or on safari in the bush.

A keen golfer, guitarist and traveller, he has worked as translator, art dealer, bespoke furniture designer and international trader. He lives with his wife and three children in Johannesburg, where he runs his own business.
