The Tiger’s Prey

Wilbur Smith


ISBN 9780007535910


The Malabar Coast is full of dangers: greedy tradesmen, fearless pirates, and men full of vengeance. But for Courtney, the greatest danger might just be his family.

Francis Courtney flees the comfort of his grand country estate, when his stepfather’s gambling debts leave him penniless and in grave danger. He travels to South Africa with revenge and fortune on his mind: his uncle Tom Courtney killed his father, and he plans on repaying the debt and making his fortune in the process. However, upon his arrival in Cape Town, he finds his whole world upturned.

Christopher Courtney sets out to make his own way in the world, giving up his privileged position as the son of the Governor of Bombay. The perils and betrayals that play out on his journey carve a fierce warrior out of him, but they also harden his soul and lead him to more violence and treachery. As the lives of the Courtney men intertwine, the sins of the fathers will forever change the lives of a younger generation. On the perilous waters of the Arabian Sea, the fates of men will intertwine.
