Book Description Continuing the saga of the South African family begun in When the Legends Die (Lippincott, 1963; o.p.), Smith weaves another compelling tale of high adventure, politics, and romance in the wilds of Zimbabwe and Mozambique. This new novel finds Sean Courtney leading a big game hunting expedition that is caught deep in hostile territory, where two tribal armies are engaged in battle. Courtney's fighting and survival instincts are constantly being tested throughout this action-packed story. Compassion and love interest temper the characterization of Sean Courtney, a bit of a change from his wild ways of the past. Smith's fans will not be disappointed in this addition to the Courtney chronicles, as he expertly describes the excitement and beauty of the African veldt.
Synopsis Two men and a woman embark on a hunt that will tear their safe African safari apart in a deadly civil war. For Sean Courtney, guerilla fighter, it is a time to fight and find love. For Claudia Montero it is the ultimate test of her values, and, for her father, a time to confront obsession.
