Summary
The next gripping Courtney family adventure from perennial bestseller and fan favourite Wilbur Smith. The saga of the legendary Courtney family continues in this fourteenth instalment in Wilbur Smith's bestselling series. The sequel to 2009's Assegai is a thrilling tale of espionage, adventure, and danger, set in Africa and spanning from the Great War's end to the dark days of World War II. In the wake of his beloved wife's death, renowned big-game hunter Leon Courtney is raising his young daughter, Saffron, alone in 1920s colonial Kenya. As Leon attempts to navigate the murky political waters of this beautiful and wild land, his daughter grows into an independent and headstrong young woman bound for a far different life in Britain, as a student at Oxford. Gerhard von Meerbach is the privileged and idealistic younger brother of Konrad von Meerbach, heir to the Meerbach Motor Works, and vocal supporter of Germany's National Socialist Party and Hitler's racial ideology. Gerhard struggles to stay true to his principles in an increasingly cruel world headed towards war. As the Second World War looms over them all, Saffron and Gerhard's worlds collide - but will there be more to unite them than tear them apart? Wilbur Smith masterfully captures the tensions that will spark a war across continents and the uncertainty and hopes of a family caught in its grips in this engrossing novel that delivers the fast-paced action and vivid history that have made him a living legend
