Summary

From the trenches of France, General Sean Courtney comes back to fame, fortune and a seat in the government. Mark Anders, the courageous young South African whom he has come to regard as his own son, returns to nothing, his grandfather murdered and his property seized by an unknown company. 

At the bottom of the mystery is Sean's son Dirk, the jealous, violent and power-crazed genius whose all-consuming hatred can only end in blood.... 

A Sparrow Falls is the thrilling third novel in the Courtney series, continuing from When the Lion Feeds and The Sound of Thunder.

Classic Wilbur Smith

Everything that we enjoy of Wilbur Smith. Historic Africa, red in tooth and claw. Heroes, wealth, adventure, War, love, and the most evil of adversaries.

One of his best

Marvellously evocative and spellbinding story, I’ve been reading Wilbur Smith all my adult life, this early book is brought to life again by the narrator and kept me enthralled all over again,
Thank you.

Riveting Throughout!

Vintage Wilbur Smith - This story grabs you from the start, draws you in and then keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

A fascinating tale of pioneering adventure, love, betrayal and intrigue and well narrated to boot!

Highly recommended.
