Summary, etc.:
In 1870s England, Jonathan Blair, a mining engineer who returned from Africa, is hired by the owner of a coal mine to find a man missing after a pit explosion, a man many people don't want found. In the process he falls in love with Rose, a tough pit girl. The novel is at once a mystery, a love story and a critique of English society, the hero being an Anglophobe. By the author of Gorky Park.
