At the close of Wilbur Smith's bestselling Monsoon, Tom Courtney and his brother Dorian battled on the high seas and finally reached the Cape of Good Hope to start life afresh. In this spellbinding new novel, the next generation of Courtneys are out to stake their claim in Southern Africa, travelling along the infamous 'Robber's Road'. It is a journey both exciting and hazardous, that takes them through the untouched wilderness of a beautiful land filled with warring tribes and wild animals. At heart a story of love and hatred, vengeance and greed, Blue Horizon is an utterly compelling adventure from one of the world's most celebrated novelists. 'Wilbur Smith is one of those benchmarks against whom others are compared' - The Times 'A masterstory teller' - Sunday Times

About the Author

Wilbur Smith was born in Central Africa in 1933. He was educated at Michaelhouse and Rhodes University. He became a full-time writer in 1964 after the successful publication of When The Lion Feeds, and has since written nearly thirty novels, all meticulously researched on his numerous expeditions worldwide. His books are now translated into twenty-six languages. Wilbur Smith lives in London and continues to have an abiding concern for the peoples and wildlife of his native continent, an interest strongly reflected in his novels.

Reviews

"Action is Wilbur Smith's game, and he is a master." -Washington Post Book World "Master storyteller Smith takes his story into another generation of adventurers battling on the sea and on land."-Tulsa World "A swashbuckling, brawling, sprawling historical epic of South Africa...will be appreciated by fans of historical fiction."-Library Journal "More than 600 pages of pure pleasure...Smith can stretch a yarn and drag every emotion you have along with it...Smith has a way of drawing you into a story, and the time period matters not a whit."-Times Record News (Wichita Falls, TX) "The eleventh volume in Smith's saga of the Courtney clan is every bit as riveting as its predecessors. Brimming with bravado, greed, and romance, this rip-roaring historical romp...will mesmerize faithful fans and win converts to Smith's trademark blend of lushly exotic fiction." --Booklist "Gripping...broad...the writer's fans will enjoy the ride."-Publishers Weekly "Really big retro-fun."-Kirkus Reviews

Another fabulous book from the master of adventure Wilbur Smith. He embodies his books with such compelling characters and detailed storylines that its like being in Africa. I reccomend reading these books in order starting with the Courtney's series and moving on the Courtney's of Africa series. A newer book that some of his others ( I think it was written in 2004) but he still has the gift.
