Format: Paperback
This is Wilbur Smith's only thriller, but with this one book he has surpassed all other writers in the genre. It is peerless, nobody else comes near him. It also marks the beginning of his most fertile period. Anybody who likes this book should go on to read A Falcon Flies and the other books in the Ballantyne series, and then everything else he wrote in the following years. His account of the Matabele wars in the Ballantyne books must be as close as it's possible to get to Homer in modern times; doubtless being born in Zambia helped, nobody growing up in Europe could achieve that epic tone. In his most recent books, sadly, he has fallen off. He still spins a good yarn, but the power and depth have gone. In fact, I wouldn't recommend anything from River God onwards. But to go back to Wild Justice and the following books, if you haven't read them yet, then I envy you: you have hundreds of hours of the most intense reading pleasure ahead.

This was the first Wilbur Smith novel I read. I was aged about 15 or 16 and had a long train journey home ahead of me. I stopped off at a newsagents just outside the railway station and selected this from a selection of about 10 other novels in the shop. My reading habbits were never to be the same again. That train journey home was one of the shortest seven hours of my life, from the first page I was gripped and hardly glanced up and the English country side flashing past the train window. This was the first time I had been so gripped by a novel that the outside world faded into almost non existense. A top thriller featuring enough set pieces for a dozen books from lesser authors. Even now 23 years later I find myself waiting impatiently for the next Wilbur Smith.

Wild Justice is as fast a book as only Smith can write it. The action and the sequence of events is so quick and unpredictable that literally doesn't let you take a breath. Smith has this ability to drag you in the center of the action, to make you read as if yourself were a hero of the story. Wild Justice is worth reading for the sake of it. It is definitely not the book that will make you think afterwards but anything you read will remain in your memory as if it was real, as if you were one of the book's heroes. This is Smith's power and that's why most people read his books. In Wild Justice you will be especially fascinated from the love affair that develops between the main characters and its twists. Also, since it is a book about the fight against terrorism, I think it is a very relevant reading in relation to the tragic events in New York last September.

Another fine story from Mr. Smith with a complex plot, likable characters and excellent levels of tension. Above all, 'Wild Justice' is full of adventure and deceit and rich detail describing all of the above !! The protagonist, Peter Stride, is a man you aspire to be, a true boyhood hero.

Wilbur Smith takes us on a long journey beginning over the Indian Ocean,taking us to Southern Africa, the UK, Europe, America and even the south Pacific before finally dumping us in the Middle East where the finale doesn't disappoint. You are never sure of the villain until the last few pages (and even then you wonder if all has been revealed) as Stride hunts down the evil genius known only as 'Caliph'.

One thing that I have come to really appreciate about Wilbur Smith are his characters. Heroes and villains alike are well described and at the peak of their game, but above all, it's Smith's ladies. Beautiful and powerful women who are never to be trifled with. I really enjoyed this story and will definitely read more of Wilbur Smith

I've read nearly all Wilburs books.This was promising to begin with, but got lost along the way.The ending was predictable.

Hal Courtney,and the Egyptian novels featuring Taita are by some . Considerable . Distance . His best works so far.

There were only fifteen passengers for the British Airways flight at Victoria Airport on the island of Mahe in the oceanic republic of the Seychelles. But one alone made the others seem insignificant by the sheer splendour of her physical presence. Once aboard she becomes a brutal and fanatical terrorist, spearhead of an international organisation intent on holding the world's powers to ransom. As the search for the power brain controlling the terrorists heightens, the explosive passions aroused by the beautiful hijacker reach an unforgettable climax in the sun scorched deserts of Galilee. Top suspense and action with a very well-designed plot.

An excellent adventure novel with some thing for everyone. General Peter Stride is everyone's hero but the twists and turns get you thinking right to the end.
A great read but echo's some of todays realities.
