Loaned to me by a friend who promised me a great story. He was right. I am now a Wilbur Smith Fan.

Great paced adventure story - Indiana Jones style. Action all the way and pure escapism ( )

I can't stop reading Wilbur Smith. His books are action packed with fantastic characters. YOu can't stop reading because you want to know what will happen! Blue Horizon is great. I read Monsoon first and then this one. It's a continuation of the Courtney Family in Africa in the 1700's. Dorian and Tom are older now and their sons feature heavily in this book. I completely recommend it. ( )
