Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Desert God and Pharaoh adds another chapter to his popular historical saga featuring the seafaring Tom Courtney, the hero of Monsoon and Blue Horizon, with this magnificent swashbuckling saga set in the 18th century and packed with action, violence, romance, and rousing adventure.
Tom Courtney, one of four sons of master mariner Sir Hal Courtney, once again sets sail on a treacherous journey that will take him across the vast reaches of the ocean and pit him against dangerous enemies in exotic destinations. But just as the winds propel his sails, passion drives his heart. Turning his ship toward the unknown, Tom Courtney will ultimately find his destiny - and lay the future for the Courtney family.
Wilbur Smith, the world's greatest storyteller, once again recreates all the drama, uncertainty, and courage of a bygone era in this thrilling saga of the sea.

Tigers prey. Usual Wilbur Smith Perfection

Wilbur Smith as always writes a gripping story that holds your attention from beginning to end. I couldn’t believe it was already over when I looked and saw it was then end of the 17th chapter already. His descriptions are amazing

Tom Sawyer was a far better read.

The author should call it a day. A nine year old would find this book boring.

Gripping

A richly woven tapestry of adventures in India. The story telling is gripping and moreish. Highly recommend prequel to Blue Horizon and certainly one of Smith's best works!
