David Bollin, born of missionary parents in Hawaii, leaves his island home to take up a new life as a gentleman in Boston. Having rejected his father’s faith, David had set out to make his own fortune and prove himself a man. But before he can realize his dream, he is plunged into an unexpected adventure–first as a hand on a whaling ship, and then as a prospector in the California gold fields.
The lure of gold and the dream of a life of ease entice him onward, drawing him into a downward spiral of deceit and trapping him in a web of murder, power and greed.
The glamorous future turns into despair as he becomes the target of unscrupulous enemies. Without a defense, what are his chances?
