by | Read by Tom Pigott-Smith

Fiction • 8 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

In a rousing installment in his Courtney Dynasty series, Smith provides an adventure novel of color and passion. Tim Pigott-Smith is, as usual, more than equal to the task as he transmogrifies his voice from African bushman to evil Dutch prize-hunter to British colonizer without breaking a sweat. Hear the drama of jungle hunting and full-on veldt battles between native warriors armed with magical power, horses, and spears and upstart Britishers wielding guns and cannons. A full complement of family infighting, exotic locales, and personalities provides escapist listening, peopled with characters who have real needs and desires. D.J.B.
