Back cover copy

"Wilbur Smith's adventure tales are big, bold and unforgettable. In "SHOUT AT THE DEVIL," the "New York Times" bestselling master storyteller takes us to a brutal paradise engulfed in the fires of civilization's war..." "" A MAN ON HIS OWN They couldn't be anymore different: an earnest young Englishman named Sebastian Oldsmith and an Irish American adventurer named Flynn O'Flynn who never encounters a rule he doesn't break. Fate brings them together in Zanzibar. A sadistic German turns them into allies, then into warriors. A WOMAN IN LOVE From the moment Rosa O'Flynn lays eyes on Sebastian, Rosa finds the man she would love forever--never mind what plans her father has for her. But imperialism is shaking Mozambique, where O'Flynn is the craftiest, fiercest beast in the jungle. And when Rosa and Sebastian lose what is most precious, they join a band of rogues, natives, wanderers, and hunters to start their own war against an enemy who has nothing to fear--and everything to lose... A HUNT FOR THE MOST DANGEROUS PREY OF ALL From the sound and sight of a charging bull elephant to ships ablaze on the Indian Ocean, this is a full throttle saga of survival--against nature, man, and the devil himself... "Action is Wilbur Smith's game, and he is a master." --"The ""Washington"" Post Book World" "[Wilbur Smith] puts the reader right there with details that are intimate, inspiring, horrifying . Fans will be happy to know Smith hasn't lost his touch for the dramatic, exotic adventure story." --"The ""Orlando"" Sentinel"""show more
