Sinopsis:

It is 1913 and ex-soldier turned professional big game hunter, Leon Courtney, is in British East Africa guiding rich and powerful men from America and Europe on safaris in the Masai tribe territories. One of his clients, German industrialist Count Otto Von Meerbach, has a company which builds aircraft and vehicles for the Kaiser's burgeoning army. But Leon had not bargained for falling passionately in love with Eva, the Count's beautiful and enigmatic mistress. Just prior to the outbreak of World War I, Leon is recruited by his uncle, Penrod Ballantyne, Commander of the British Forces in East Africa , to gather information from Von Meerbach. He stumbles on a plot against the British involving the disenchanted survivors of the Boer War, but it is only when Eva and Von Meerbach return to Africa that Leon finds out who and what is really behind the conspiracy.

From the Back Cover:

In this explosive New York Times bestseller, acclaimed storyteller Wilbur Smith takes readers on an unforgettable adventure set against the gathering clouds of war...

HE MUST CHOOSE TO SAVE HIS COUNTRY

Ex-soldier Leon Courtney guides the rich and powerful from America and Europe on big-game safaris. After a successful expedition with U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, Leon became one of the world's most sought-after hunters. Now, he is about to find out that celebrity comes at a hazardous price.

OR FIGHT FOR THE WOMAN HE LOVES

Leon has been recruited by the British forces to gather intelligence on Count Otto von Meerbach, a German industrialist who builds aircraft for the Kaiser's growing army. As his safari guide, Leon is closer to the Count than anyone―and it's not long before he stumbles upon a plot that could turn the tides of the coming World War. But when he falls for the Count's beautiful mistress, Eva, all bets are off. Now Leon finds himself desperately in love, dangerously alone to stop the Count's plan...and in grave peril as he learns more about the enigmatic Eva.
