Summary

The sun went down behind the storm clouds, and stained them with its blood, then the rain fell upon the ship in torrents. Solid sheets of water hammered the wooden decks so hard that the din drowned the men's voices and blotted out their vision.

They leave as brothers. They must return as men.

Famed sailor Hal Courtney is now a man of land and family. But when the King orders him to sail to Madagascar and stop the pirates responsible for looting the finest trading ships of the East India Trading Company and bringing ruin to them all, Hal must travel with his three younger sons on a journey that will shape the young men forever.

In this swashbuckling adventure of marauders and slave traders, love and treasure, the brothers will face duels, chases, betrayals and battles - and see their fates cast in ways they could never have imagined....

A Courtney Series adventure - book two in the Birds of Prey trilogy.

Fabulously written and narrated.

Wilbur Smith was at the height of his story writing powers here and it was hard to stop listening as the tale moved with such speed and intrigue. Incredibly well researched with minute details that help to convince the listener that they are actually there witnessing it.
Sean Barrett is a master narrator and his ability to give each character a real personality increases the enjoyment of listening to this story and his expression is never dull. Fabulous.

fantastic story

A true epic. Filled with 'history', adventure, intrigue and sub-plots. One of the best narrators I have listened to also.

A great big romp of a book!

I really enjoyed this. Wilbur Smith can spin a ripping yarn and no one can narrate it better than Sean Barrett. I will continue with this series, looking forward to it already.
