How do you go about solving a murder when no one – including even the victim’s wife - is telling the truth? For Brazilian geologist and financial analyst Feisty Ferreira, it means a journey to the rugged Australian outback, where mystery surrounds a massive new gold discovery.
There she meets a strange cast of characters that include a gold mining entrepreneur with a dark secret, a church pastor on a mission to stop the gold from being mined, and a young woman graduate student who serves beer in a pub in her underwear – one of the town’s famous skimpies.
And in the background is a mysterious Chinese woman who seems to be trying to buy up the entire output of the new goldmine.
This novella (32,000 words) is the second in the Feisty Ferreira financial mystery series.

Feisty Ferreira is at it again in this mystery by Martin Roth. This is the second Feisty mystery I've read and remains the tenacious amateur PI that I remembered from the first book. A geologist by trade, born in Brazil, educated in the US and living in Australia, Feisty lives up to her nickname as she solves the mystery behind the murder of one of her colleagues in a backwoods mining town. She is a likeable character and I hope to see more of her in future books. Having said that, it did seem like the story wrapped up rather abruptly.
I loved the depth of the characters and the writing. I was surprised and saddened at the abrupt ending. Otherwise wonderful.
