Review. “Best Historical Novelist--I say Wilbur Smith You can get lost in site Store · site eBooks · Literature & Fiction. In this epic African adventure, Wilbur Smith returns to his longest running series -- and the very beginnings of the Courtney family saga in the.
Courtney's War is an epic story of courage, betrayal and undying love that takes the reader to the very heart of a world at war. But for a Courtney, the greatest danger might just be his own family. The ancient city of Luxor is surrounded. All seems lost. His wife was taken much too soon, by a cruel man with evil intentions. Only he can plot a mission that will return Egypt to its former glory.
Only he can muster the force that can break the back of Egypt's greatest enemy. A terrorist group has re-emerged — like a deadly scorpion from beneath its rock. Hazel is not on board at the time, but her nineteen year old daughter, Cayla, is kidnapped and held to ransom. The pirates demand a crippling twenty billion dollar ransom for her release. Leon has developed a special relationship with the Masai.
Working alongside an enemy of Courtney's, Pett tries to murder Hal, but is killed instead, alerting the Captain to the price on his head. When Courtney discovers that his wife, a famous Ethiopian general before her marriage, is pregnant, he is elated in hopes of having an heir to carry on the Courtney name.
Working to fulfil his side of the bargain with Jahan, the Buzzard is able to capture Judith and imprison her as they sail back to Zanziabar. Courtney stops at nothing to find his wife and return her to the safety of his ship, though even doing so does not end the danger that awaits him.
In a last-ditch effort to bring Courtney's head to the Maharajah, the Buzzard hopes to attack Courtney at the site of his buried treasure, gathering more rewards than he could have previously imagined.
This will be a battle to the bitter end, pitting one man's honour against another. An interesting addition to the Courtney series that has enough action to keep Smith fans interested.
While the book is labeled as the fourteenth instalment in the Courtney collection, it might better be called "nine and a half", fitting nicely between Birds of Prey and Monsoon.
The novel examines Hal Courtney and his connection to Judith, who receives scant mention in Monsoon. While the story follows Smith's general maritime adventure outline, complete with all the essential elements, there is a distinct flavour loss when Kristian takes up the pen and seemingly ghost writes the novel.
I have read different sources on whether this was a joint venture or a new author using one with a great deal of NYT Bestseller experience to advance his cause. Havana Storm.
