The story is of an intriguing battle for the heart of a woman occupying the wit of 2 likeable but very different heros- and is set against a tragically inevitable unfolding of the colonial ambitions of Fascist Italy, just before the 2nd World War. Every page rings true and contains humour and believable characters on a grand scale. There is pathos and joy, and the huge backdrop of historical events is understood at all times by the reader- whilst we wonder about the outcome of the male struggle to secure the affections of a strong female lead character. The tale is fast paced and very difficult to put the book down- a true sign of a well-written and riveting story.

I am an avid reader of Wilbur Smith and have read most of his books. In fact the very first book I ever read was 'When the Lion Feeds' and I have re-read it since and believe it to be a masterpiece of action and adventure. 'Cry Wolf' was boring and drawn out from the start to the unfinished ending and I have no difficulty it thoroughly not recommending it to your customers. Wilbur Smith usually takes you on a high octane adventure which makes it compulsive reading from beginning to end. In my opinion he just churned out this dross to keep his publishers quite.

Really disappointed with this book.I'm a big fan of wilbur smith and was looking forward to cry wolf. It starts ok but soon descends into unbelievable plot and ridiculous characters. The more I read it the more it became monotonous. I persevered for as long as possible,hoping that it might get better. It didn't.

I have read all of his books and they now seem to descend to the level of a "Boy's Own Comic" of superficiality. I could predict most of the story and the writing is just not up to his usual standard- go back to how it was or stop writing!! I would not recommend this at all

Wilber Smith's stories are always gripping and transport you to exotic places.
his audio cd's pass the time on a journey in a delightful way.

Wilbur Smith writes a good story as usual. This book is not part of his series books, it is a stand alone story. Well worth the read. As soon as I started reading I couldn't put it down.
