Only Time Will Tell - Book Information
Translation of rear cover of book
His thoughts were interrupted when the torch light fell on two skeletons to the left of him. It almost fell out of his hands. Cold shivers rand up and down his spine. He was panting and had to gather his wits to move closer. He quickly pointed the torch in another direction because it felt as if the skeletons were laughing at him. A perished leather pouch near the hand of one of the skeletons attached his attention. On touching it, it disintegrated. Then he gasped, it cannot be, he groaned, holding the dull yellow object in his hand and looking at it in the light of the torch. The gold pound lay heavy in the palm of his hand.
From a cold winters morning at Pretoria Station during the Boer War to the early nineties in South America, London and South Africa the unsolved mystery stays the same: What became of the golden pounds of the ZAR. Peter Olivier is young, adventurous and fanatical in his rightwing political thinking. His road crosses that of Sarah Brown, rebel, lost child and communist.
Who will be the first to lay their grasping hands on the lost fortune. Antonio Rodriques and his drug cartel or National Intelligence ?
High-powered politicians, traitors, true friends and murderers, lives entangled with an ending of which only time will tell.
Synopsis of the book to be edited and expanded over the 16 episodes
The legend of the lost Kruger Millions (reportedly the world’s biggest unfound treasure) has been part of the South African history for more than hundred years. The treasure disappeared during the war Imperial Britain fought against the, as it then was, two independent Republics (also referred to as the last Gentleman’s War)
Historically seen, gold was transported from Pretoria by train which left on the afternoon of 4 June 1900 and reached Machadodorp at 2 o’clock on the morning of the 5th. Gold on that train was used to pay state expenses and to finance the going on of the war
Author and Scriptwriter
I was always fascinated by writing and the use of words.
My novel was published in 1997.
However, movies and the undefinable and magical combination of many talented persons working together in producing a visual feast for the eye and other senses, are my first love.
I attended Robert Mckee’s London script writing course many years ago.
And then life happened..
Maybe the time is now..
Let’s see where this road will take us..
