Hal Courtney has always lived at sea. Now a truce has been made between the warring countries and Hal is captain of his own ship; the Golden Bough. From the slave markets of Zanzibar to the pirate-riddled waters of the Indian Ocean, Hal leads his crew in and out of the waves of danger. But he soon realizes that just because the war is over, does not mean the battle is won, and the more a man achieves, the more he has to lose.
In this sweeping adventure full of danger, action, and intrigue, the master who has been the model for bestselling authors such as Clive Cussler and Bernard Cornwell returns to his longest-running series, taking fans back to the very beginnings of the Courtney family saga. Print run 200,000.

Sorry, just not up to his usual standards. Just got done reading "Birds of Prey" and went to this one. The only Wilbur Smith book I couldn't finish. Just not the same when writing by himself.

I enjoyed reading this book, but not as good as some his other books. Lots of action, and a fast moving plot yet the hummf is some how missing. One of the ways i judge books is in how involved he gets me in the story and this one was good but not great. Too bad all th eelements are there.

I've come to be a great fan of the author, but strangely, this novel doesn't find traction with me. After a number of attempts, I haven't been able to get very far at all into this novel. Perhaps it's the setting; perhaps I'm not the swashbuckling type.
Wilbur, I'll have to take a pass on this one.

Another winner. Not as good as some of Wilburs but better than his other recent stories.

Not a bad book but his writing is becoming more like an adult boys own.
