by | Read by Tim Pigott-Smith

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1971

Wilbur Smith's sinewy, relentless storytelling is brought to life once again by the relentlessly talented Tim Pigott-Smith. A South-African diamond dynasty's rise and fall is chronicled in this passionate story of Johnny Lance's lifelong struggle to attain his father's acceptance. Be prepared for internecine family warfare, panoramic depictions of the great outdoors, and colorful villains as the passion for wealth and power battles the passion for achievement and integrity. The action moves from city to wind-whipped seaside to remote diamond-crusted islands. Vivid word-pictures coupled with Pigott-Smith's flawless voice acting deliver a swashbuckling listen. D.J.B.
