5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 15 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Smith breaks from his usual fare of good, butformulaic series books, and shows that he is perfectly capable of pulling off the stand-alone novel with style. Well-written and with a good plot, this will keep you turning pages. Smith's main advantage over the likes of jack higgins is his strong story telling abilities and excellent use of language, both evident in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for anyone with taste 29 Mar 2002
Format:Paperback
This was the first book of Smiths i had read, and i found it impossible to put down. From the first page, the characters are made so real that you immediatly care about them, and feel the need to find out what happens. Someof the action scenes are so gripping, it feels like you are watching a great movie, and Smiths writing is so wonderfully descriptive, you can really picture the action, and sympathise with the emotions of the characters. A fantastic read.

3.0 out of 5 stars An action-crammed story 30 Jun 2005
By HORAK
Format:Paperback
Harry Fletcher lives a quiet life on St Mary's Island and he takes charters on board "Wave Dancer" for fishing and diving. Angelo and Chubby are his two assistants. But the inoffensive Harry once used to be called Harry Bruce and he used to practice the art of violence and sudden death in Malaya, Vietnam, the Congo and Biatra. Furthermore he used to lift complete collections of gold coins in the British Museum and cut diamonds in Amsterdam and to transport hundreds of millions of dollars worth of gold bars from Switzerland to Rome.
One day three suspicious looking men, Charley Anderson, Mike Guthric and Jimmy North, want to hire Harry's boat claiming that they want "to do a little exploring" and that they need a full array of scuba diving and salvage equipment. Then they hand Harry a chart showing that they are interested in an area thirty miles north of the mouth of the Rovuma River. What are these men after? When they recognise Harry as "the gold heist from Rome", he senses that the stakes are high and that he is sitting in the game with "big boys" once again... One of the best adventure novel by Wilbur Smith.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of his best 3 May 2002
Format:Paperback
Some of my favourite books are Wilbur Smith's earlier works that is why I am finding time to read them again and this is one that has not jaded with time. This is a mystery thriller mixed with violence, horror and death. A great adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 29 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wilbur Smith is great! It was the very first book I've read by him and is definitely not going to be the last one. The way he writes is mind blowing and his imagination is beyond anything. The book deserves five stars from the first page to the very last one. His descriptions on people situations and feeling are like paintings. The story is totally unpredictable and extremely gripping, I just couldn't put the book down. If you want to go for a good reading adventure, this is the book to go for. Enjoy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rip roaring adventure on the high seas 5 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Harry Fletcher, a charter fisherman with a dubious past spends lazy days in St Marys skippering for rich businessmen with a taste for big game fish, his tatest charter however, is about to resurect his ugly past and thrust him and his crew into to a dangerous adventure consisting of sunken treasure, murder, action and cunning together with beautiful tropical seas.
Wilbur Smiths brand of vividly descriptive storytelling always keeps me rivetted and this is no exception. If action-packed treasure seeking adventures are your thing, you'll certainly enjoy this!

This book centres around the adventures of a man with a checkered past who stumbles across a treasure hunting gang of mobsters. Soon the race is on to see who will get the treasure first with danger at every turn. Excellent adventure reading and hardly a mention of old Africa!
