Simon Saunders on
Wilbur Smith continues the saga story of ‘The Courtneys’ in the next installment entitled ‘Birds of Prey’. In this story Sir Francis Courtenay and son are awaiting the supply ships from the Dutch East India Company laden with gold, spices etc off the coast of southern Africa. A historical drama with plenty of action and family turmoil.
