From master storyteller Wilbur Smith, an escapist adventure in the timeless Courtney Series.

We are Courtneys. We don’t have to fight with our fists. We fight with power and money and influence. Nobody can beat us on our own ground.’

A powerful family. A time of war.

Centaine de Thiry Courtney has not only survived, but thrived. She is a successful woman with two sons of her own: Shasa Courtney, the Courtney heir, and Manfred de la Rey, Shasa’s half-brother, her secret child raised solely by his father. At the time of the Great Depression, Centaine must make difficult decisions to ensure the security of her family – decisions that will affect Manfred and his father, Lothar de la Rey, a man Centaine once loved. But the world is changing, and conflicts greater than any the world has seen before are looming. Centaine and her children must face the upcoming war – where not all of them will be on the same side…

A Courtney Series adventure – Book 2 in The Burning Shore sequence.

Authors

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.
