Product Description

Review

"Wilbur Smith leaves fans feeling that they sailed alongside Sir Hal because the geography and the era appear so genuine. This is what makes a Smith book worth reading."--"Midwest Book Review "on "Monsoon" "Smith's novel is far more than your typical pirate script...A fascinating account...Smith deftly evokes not only the horrific but also the beautiful, particularly the lush landscape of Africa."--"The Washington Post Book World" on "Birds of Prey" "As usual, Smith...peoples his tale with unforgettable characters...Swashbuckling and sensuous, "Birds of Prey" is not for the faint-hearted. This latest epic transcends the average action-adventure yarn."--"The Orlando Sentinel" "A rich, compelling look back in time when history and myth intermingled."--"San Francisco Chronicle" on "River God" "Throughout "The Seventh Scroll," as in all Wilbur Smith novels, the plot twists and turns with constant surprises...This old-fashioned adventure novel keeps the reader enthralled all the way to its very exciting conclusion."--"The Washington Post Book World" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Having read about ten of Wilber Smiths books,I found Diamond Hunters a little bit run of the mill,it just seemed to lack the action imagination and unpredictability of most of his other brilliant books.

My first ever novel by Wilbur Smith, and I have to honest it was very enjoyable.

Johny Lance is the adopted son into a family run diamond finding business. Unfortunately things take a sinister turn after a childhood incident. Villified by all except his stepsister he continues to show loyalty to the company, even thinking he has gained acceptance when he is included in his stepfathers will. This turns out to be his stepfathers legacy that he be absolutely ruined.

His stepbrother, Benedict, makes it his lifes ambition to destroy Lance. This results in blackmail, smuggling and eventually even murder.

The only reason I give the book 4 instead of 5 was that I felt a bit too much of the plot was given away too early in the book.

Will def try this author again.

I found the story line to diamond hunters to be a little boring, the story line followed a predictable plot and the characters were not the strongests. It is an easy read and if you wnat to be entertained without having to use your brain to much this is a book for you.

If you are a Wilbur Smith fan, if not you soon will be !
It was all too short, and that is always a good sign. I settle down, in bed, with my Kindle for a 1 hour read. I realise that I have been reading for 2 hours, wow! Even worse if I am near the end, then I have to finish, however long it takes !
Only 1 criticism, no graphic description of his female characters, which was his previous modis operandi . Shame !

Not one of Wilbur Smith's best novels, we were a little disappointed with the predictable story plot. It came in good time & well packaged.
