Private: Gold takes place in South Africa. Johannesburg is the largest city, founded in 1880 as a Gold Rush City, a city where everyone wants to be a rich.

Khosi Khumalo was a trained bodyguard and Private investigator who started Private Johannesburg. He brought Joey Montague in as a partner. Things haven’t been well lately; their last contract canceled, someone broke into the office and now Khosi is dead. Joey decides to move the office to his home. Joey gets a call from a nervous American name Isobel Collins. She’s in need of a body guard while in Johannesburg. She has yet to tell him why she’s in the most dangerous part of town or what she’s up to. Joey calls Private owner, Jack Morgan. Jack tells Joey his job as a close protection officer is not to get in Isobel’s way or to stop her, but to keep her safe while she does it. That’s all Joey needs to hear. The only person who knows Isobel is on a secret mission in South Africa is her girlfriend back in America. When Joey and Isobel finally meet up, all hell breaks loose.

It’s complicated mystery in a short story format. The authors focus on the characters and the suspense. The clues unfold slowly in the midst of all the action, and then it’s all over. The ending leaves us wanting more of Private Johannesburg team.

Actor & Singer Robert Petkoff gives listeners a clear, convincing narration of Private Gold. He has narrated a variety of fiction and nonfiction audiobooks, with the longest narration list is mystery and suspense.
