    Wilbur Smith always writes with great authenticity and his description of both people and places is,second to none.He always comes up with a great plot and as it is normally based on historical events which are widely known.This book is based around Africa and the slave trade and his description of places and the character s is brilliantly written.Plenty of action which is well described and believable down to earth characters,make this a great book.

    Rereading this book reminds so much of why I love Wilbur Smiths books He weaves history, fiction and his characters into such a story that its sometimes hard to seperate one from the other Every one of these books is a journey through history and a time now forgotten by most.

    A good story well told Three men of action and the woman that comes between them Lost cities, buried treasure, elephant hunts and sea battles What could one ask for

    I read this first about 30 years ago and remembered loving it so I ve just got the series again Somehow with the risk of hunting wild animals to extinction, I suppose I m not enjoying it as much Bearing in mind it is set in the late 1800 s before we were all so aware, if you can get past the slaughter of elephants etc then this is a really good novel, As with all his books it is brilliantly written and his research is impeccable but to be honest I can t wait to get it finished and get on with the next one when, if memory serves, this method of making a fortune is no longer centre stage in the story.

    Classic Wilbur Smith immediately enveloping the reader in a fast moving plot embellished with lush descriptions of believable characters, scenery and situations Hugely engrossing and leading inevitably straight on to the 2nd book with barely a breath in between Brilliant.

    Excellent read as always by Wilbur Smith except the parts when the elephant hunting takes place, which I tend to skip through I know that this happened in those times but I must admit I find it hard to read about the killing of such magnificent animals Apart from that excellent story.

    A typical Wilbur Smith adventure that keeps you riveted from start to finish A good story line littered with side plots means you keep the pages turningAs with all his work i have never been disappointed and will always be a fab

    Wilbur Smith is the master of historical fiction I ve been reading him for 40 years I save his books like fine wine Reading his books is like watching a moviehe is so good at descriptions that you feel like you re on the scene.
