Product Description

About the Author

Jeffrey Whittam was born in Lancashire, England in 1947. His formative years in Southern Rhodesia were spent fishing, hunting and exploring the wilderness. Still in his early twenties, Jeffrey 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. He now lives in the wilder reaches of Lancashire's fell country with his wife, children and three dogs.

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.

Fast paced, detailed and conjuring up all the tastes and smells of Africa, I loved this book! Extra exciting set in modern Zimbabwe. The whole world knows of the ruling party's revenges and the brutality metered out to any in their way. I read this book too fast!

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?

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!!

This is an OK tale to while away a rainy afternoon but if you are looking for a rousing tale like you would get from early Wilbur Smith books you will probably be disappointed. I was. The plot was weak and the characters stereotypes and the book lacked any great depth.

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...
