By Wilbur Smith The next meticulously researched novel uniting Wilbur Smith's Courtneys Of Africa and Ballantynes series. Smith has used his own experiences from numerous expeditions to his native Africa, along with detailed research to provide his readers with a rich tapestry of prose. Although The Triumph Of The Sun concerns the Courtney family, which Smith has written about in no less than 11 other novels, the story is still instantly accessible to the casual reader. A lot of the strength in Smith's writing is within the detailed and emotive descriptions. We are immersed into Khartoum in the 19th century and provided with characters that are at the same time extraordinary and believable. Wilbur Smith has successfully published another novel that will not only satisfy long-time readers, but also earn him new fans.
