Publisher's Summary

The Malabar coast is full of dangers: greedy tradesmen, fearless pirates, and men full of vengeance. But for a Courtney, the greatest danger might just be his own family....
Francis Courtney flees the comfort of his Devonshire estate when his stepfather's gambling debts leave him penniless and at risk. He sails to South Africa with revenge and fortune on his mind: his uncle Tom Courtney killed his father, and Francis intends to avenge his death and make his fortune in the process. However, upon his arrival in Cape Town, he uncovers a truth that leaves him overwhelmed and disoriented.
Christopher Courtney sets out to make his own way in the world, giving up his privileged position as the son of the Governor of Bombay. The perils and betrayals on his journey carve a fierce warrior out of him, but they also harden his soul and lead him to greater violence and treachery. As the lives of these two Courtney men intertwine, the sins of the fathers will forever alter the lives of a younger generation.
The Tiger's Prey takes listeners on an epic journey from the southernmost point of Africa, through the perilous waters of the Arabian Sea, to the lush Indian coastline. It is an incredible and breathless tale of intrigue and family betrayal from one of the world's greatest storytellers.

Rip roaring stuff

Enjoyed the whole story, well written and drew me into the tale, I have read all the Courtney tales so had all the background. Did not however think some of the graphic language used to describe the various love elements added anything to the story. I didn’t need to know about the mechanics of the lovemaking, not very Wilbur Smith in that respect.

Good adventure story

Good intriguing story but too much head hopping for my taste with thoughts from different characters changing from one paragraph to the next. Well read.
