Description

From directly overhead he heard the loud flapping of heavy wings, and another vulture rose from beyond the screen of banana plants. Leon felt the chill of dread. If the brutes are settling that means there's meat lying out there, dead meat.

King and country. No matter the cost. 

With the backing of his uncle, General Penrod Ballantyne, young Leon Courtney joins the King's Rifles of Nairobi. When he becomes discouraged by the dishonesty of army life, his uncle recruits him for a special mission - spying on the Germans in East Africa, whom the General suspects are preparing for the Kaiser's war. Posing as a professional game hunter, Leon is tasked with gathering information on one of his clients, wealthy industrialist Otto Von Meerbach.  

Leon finds himself falling for Von Meerbach's beautiful mistress but never forgets that his real mission is to destroy the enemy. But how easy will he find his task when his true enemy is closer to home than Leon ever expected?

A Courtney adventure - book 1 in the Assegai sequence.

wow what an awesome story

Seems as though Wilbur Smith's books not only get better chronologically, but they also become more meaningful to me.

Assegai offers special twists, moving from the traditional war and battle stories to hunting with a bang. Boy does Smith deliver. This is honestly one of the best hunting and African novels I have read. Painting vivid pictures of hunting's particular excitement, but the description if Africa and safari are clear, memorable and accurate.

Everything written brings back my memories. THANK YOU
