More About the Author

Jeffrey Whittam's formative years in Southern Rhodesia were spent fishing, hunting and exploring the wilderness. Still in his early twenties, he became a prospector of note and sold his first gold claims in 1973. For the best part of the bush war, he fought with the Rhodesia Regiment's 10th Battalion. Jeffrey's commitment to authenticity and his ability to entertain is there to be enjoyed; many of the mining and military scenes are developed from his own experience.

Jeffrey now lives in the wilder reaches of Lancashire's fell country with his wife, children and 3 dogs. His considerable empathy with Africa and its people and natural flair for storytelling is reflected in his writing. Following the international success of Sons of Africa and Empress Gold, Jeffrey's third novel is promising to be a personal best and is due for release in paperback and on Amazon Kindle in 2015.

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Sons of Africa, I was eagerly awaiting Jeffrey Whittam's next book and it did not disappoint. It builds on the beginnings of the Goddard family saga, laid down in his first book and traces the linked pathways of the main characters as they weave a tortuous route through Mugabe's modern Zimbabwe.

His attention to detail, exciting but believable storyline for someone who has lived in neighbouring Zambia during some of the timespan of the story, leaves the reader in the same page turning mode as the earlier Wilbur Smith books used to.

A cracker of a tale. Can't wait for the next one.

Every bit as good as his first book, looking forward to the third book being published.

If you are a fan of Wilbur Smith, then you'll love the Jeffrey Whittam books.

Even better than his first excellent book, Empress Gold had me totally engrossed from beginning to end. Full of twists and turns, packed with action and riveting plot lines i cannot recommend this novel highly enough.
It is rare for me to find an author whose style of writing i am completely happy with.....some leave me wondering how on earth they managed to get a publishing deal. This is not the case with Jeffrey Whittam. His writing is so descriptive and 'colourful' that it leaves me in no doubt that he knows what he is writing about. Bring on your next book, Jeffrey!!

Whittam is a worthy successor to Wilbur Smith. Sons of Africa was wonderful and the follow up is just as good.

Wonderful read. I have read both his books and thoroughly enjoyed it. His books are written in a country I know very well and of people that I grew along side of. It shows the hardship, the joys and triumphs and the real Africa. Above all it is so very well written with every little detail imaginable. As you read you can actually see the people. Any more on its way Jeffery?

Compared to it's predecessor, which was based in 19 th century Zimbabwe, this is a modern continuation of the same saga. A delight to find an author at home in both genres and able to keep the reader engrossed throughout.

Can't wait for the next installment...
