"Black Gold by C.B. Samet shows a tremendous amount of heart wrapped around a riveting story populated by sympathetic characters who will captivate readers." --Judge, 24th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards (Nov 2017)
Disillusioned after trudging through several years in the bleak, hectic, and unsatisfying trenches of an Atlanta hospital emergency room, Dr. Lillian Whyte realizes that the luster and idealism of medicine and healing is fading. Concerned about her swelling cynicism about her job, her supervisor 'volunteers' her to lead a group of residents on a medical mission to Kenya.
An ocean away from her troubles, she finds comfort in aiding local inhabitants and refugees who have fled from civil unrest in neighboring countries. However, the tranquility turns to chaos when her clinic is ambushed by a marauding troupe of militant thieves led by a conniving oil profiteer. Faced with the prospect of permanent captivity and/or probable death, Dr. Whyte must find the resolve to outwit her captors and escape. With the help of a CIA operative turned love interest, she seeks to disband the oil thieves while restoring her humanitarianism in medicine and her faith in herself.
"CB Samet is the master of the craft, exhibiting a great narrative style and a strong, captivating voice. I enjoyed a lot about this novel, including the well-paced, intriguing plot, the memorable characters, and the wonderful prose." -- Readers' Favorite: Book Review (2017)
