Publisher's Summary

Queen Victoria's reign is in full flourish, her empire expanding, and her colonies stretching across the globe. In Africa, the land proves rich with minerals, and the trading companies continue to cross the seas and grow. On the banks of the river Nile, two families meet: the Courtneys and the Ballantynes. Both influential, powerful, and determined to dominate, their encounter provides the background for Wilbur Smith's dramatic and powerful novel. It is Wilbur Smith at his masterful best.


What the Critics Say

"Set in colonial Egypt at the end of Victoria's reign, this sweeping romantic epic reprises Smith regulars - scions of the Courteneys and will not be disappointed." (Publishers Weekly)
