Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New York Times bestselling author and one of the greatest adventure writers of our time returns with a pulse pounding tale of danger, courage and suspense. In the tradition of Wilbur Smith's earlier bestseller, Monsoon, this spellbinding new novel introduces the next generation of Courtneys. They are out to stake their claim in Southern Africa, travelling along the infamous "Robbers' Road."

The Dream Of A Family.

The Future Of An Empire.

The Adventure Of A Lifetime.

With adventure in their blood, Jim and Mansur Courtney seek to carve out a life for themselves and their families in the unexplored splendor of Africa. But laying claim to a land devastated by war yields unexpected risks. No sooner does their journey unfold than their destiny changes with the daring rescue of a woman imprisoned on a doomed convict ship. Blazing a thousand-mile trail, they escape across a savage world of warring native tribes, bounty hunters, and predators driven by greed and lust. Now the Courtney's true quest begins-a life-and-death pursuit of a dream at any cost...

"Action is Wilbur Smith's game, and he is a master." -Washington Post Book World

An electrifying tale of danger, courage, and suspense set in colonial South Africa from one of the greatest historical adventure writers living today - a master novelist at the height of his abilities.

I have read most of Wilbur Smith's books and don't know how I missed this one. None of his books are bad. This is one of his best! Not to be missed. Action and adventure from begining to end, It's a great adventure with descriptions that take you along for the ride.

Don't miss it!
