Summary

The New York Times bestselling 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 eighteenth 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 towards 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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Smith (War Cry, 2016), with coauthor Harper (Zodiac Station, 2015), continues to log the seafaring exploits of the indefatigable Tom Courtney as well as those of the next generation of Courtney swashbucklers. Lives and destinies collide in the late eighteenth century as Tom, Francis, and Christopher Courtney set sail for exotic ports located in places that range from the tip of Africa to the rugged coast of the Indian subcontinent. Seeking enlightenment, independence, and revenge, each attempts to conquer his own inner demons as long-buried family secrets and scandals are revealed. In typical Courtney-series style, fashion, romance, action, and adventure await all three as they carve out their own distinct niches on the entangled Courtney family tree. Longtime fans won't be disappointed as another chapter in this cross-continental, multigenerational saga is chronicled.--Flanagan, Margaret Copyright 2017 Booklist"
