Description

From the battlefields of Sudan to colonial Sydney and the Queensland outback, a dreadful curse still inextricably links the lives of the Macintoshes and Duffys. Captain Patrick Duffy is a man torn between the family of his father, Irish Catholic soldier-of-fortune Michael Duffy and his adoring, scheming maternal grandmother, Enid Mackintosh. Visiting the village of his Irish forbears on a quest to uncover the secrets surrounding his birth, Patrick is beguiled by the beautiful, mysterious Catherine Fitzgerald. On the rugged Queensland frontier Native Mounted Police trooper Peter Duffy is torn between his duty, the blood of his mother's people - the Nerambura tribe - and a predestined deadly duel with Gordon James, the love of his sister Sarah. Flight of the Eagle is the stunning conclusion to the trilogy featuring the bestselling Cry of the Curlew and Shadow of the Osprey, and shows master storyteller Peter Watt at the height of his powers.show more
