Cry Of The Rocks
All Books are second hand
The mystique of mining has always fascinated people. Cry of the Rocks is a novel about the issues and dangers of deep rock mining. It describes life at Nkuti, a modern deep-rock platinum mine in post-apartheid South Africa, and takes the reader into the depths of the earth, to the grueling work-face as well as to the harsh reality of life above ground.
But Cry of the Rocks is also a thriller, which includes kidnapping, a murder and an international conspiracy. With its modern multi-racial mix of characters, the story probes deeply into the lives of the people of Nkuti, where a mysterious man threatens the miners into sabotaging the mine while also carrying out two kidnappings. Then a series of rock bursts trap dozens of miners below ground. Can the miners be saved?
