The Sunday Times bestselling prequel to A Falcon Flies by Wilbur Smith (Sunday Times, September 2020)

The action-packed and gripping new adventure by number one bestselling author, Wilbur Smith, about one man’s quest for revenge.

‘The right of the cat over the mouse, of the strong over the weak. The natural law of existence.’ Mungo St John, A Falcon Flies

The   son of a wealthy plantation owner and a doting mother, Mungo St John  is accustomed to the wealth and luxuries his privilege has afforded him.  That is until he returns from university to discover his  family  ruined, his inheritance stolen and his childhood sweetheart, Camilla,  taken by the conniving Chester Marion. Fuelled by anger, and  love,  Mungo swears vengeance and devotes his life to saving Camilla –  and  destroying Chester.

Camilla, trapped in New Orleans, powerless  to her position as a kept slave and suffering at the hands of Chester’s  brutish  behaviour, must learn to do whatever it takes to survive.

As   Mungo battles his own fate and misfortune to achieve  the revenge that   drives him, and regain his power in the world, he must question what  it takes for a man to survive when he has nothing, and what he is  willing  to do in order to get what he wants.

Wilbur Smith

Wilbur Smith was born in Central Africa in 1933. He became a full-time writer in 1964 following the success of When the Lion Feeds, and has since published over fifty global bestsellers, including the Courtney Series, the Ballantyne Series, the Egyptian Series, the Hector Cross Series and many successful standalone novels, all meticulously researched on his numerous expeditions worldwide. An international phenomenon, his readership built up over fifty-five years of writing, establishing him as one of the most successful and impressive brand authors in the world.

The establishment of the Wilbur & Niso Smith Foundation in 2015 cemented Wilbur’s passion for empowering writers, promoting literacy and advancing adventure writing as a genre. The foundation’s flagship programme is the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize.

Wilbur Smith passed away peacefully at home in 2021 with his wife, Niso, by his side, leaving behind him a rich treasure trove of novels and stories that will delight readers for years to come.
