Fortunes rise and fall in this gripping tale of brotherly hatred, from global bestseller Wilbur Smith.

The tall wave of green water that raced across the pit hit the Land Rover, upending her, throwing Johnny into the jubilant frothing water, while the Land Rover rolled over on her back, pointing all four wheels to the sky in surrender. Johnny went under.

Some people will never have enough . . .

Johnny Lance, taken in by the Van Der Byls when he was an orphaned boy, has always done everything to please the Old Man and his adoptive siblings: jealous Benedict and smart, beautiful Tracey. But a terrible misunderstanding means the Old Man has spent decades trying to destroy Johnny – a legacy that continues even after the bitter patriarch’s death. Manipulated into giving everything he has to the Van Der Byl Diamond Company, Johnny realises he only really needs two things in life: his good name, and to be with Tracey. But an obsessive Benedict has been shaped at his father’s hand, and will do anything to ensure Johnny fails. Even if it means the end of them all . . .

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.
