Description

From best-selling novelist Wilbur Smith, The Eye of the Tiger is an exciting adventure set amongst the peaceful islands of the Indian Ocean, where a man's past returns to hunt him down.

'I was looking down, watching the shark come. It seemed to swell up in size as it rushed towards me. Every detail was burned into my mind in those frantic seconds. I saw the hog's snout with the two slotted nostrils, the golden eyes with the black pupils like arrowheads, the broad blue back from which stood the tall executioner's blade of the dorsal fin.'

Harry Fletcher, a man with a chequered past, has reformed and is making an honest living as a charter skipper fishing for big game in the seductive waters of the Indian Ocean. Suddenly men from the world of violence Harry has put behind him overturn his good intentions, involving him in a hectic race to recover a fabulous treasure from an ancient wreck.

Very good book with a diving focus

Although there is plenty of action combined with vivid descriptions of Africa, Wilbur Smith explores realms outside of his comfort zone. This book focuses on diving around the islands off-shore from northern Mozambique. Although it took a little work to get going, I ended up enjoying the book a lot.

Timeless Expat Intrigue Tale

This stand-alone novel is like a Graham Greene novel suspended in a contemporary action thriller. Wilbur Smith is a phenomenally adept chronicler of the British Colonial and post-colonial experience. Buy everything he has written...I have and don’t regret my investments.

Best Wilbur Smith Ever?

Whatever a great audible book contains this one has it. Ben Onwukwe 's narration is superb, his character creation in voice was as good as it gets. The story is or could be Wilbur Smith's best. Albeit written several years ago, the story is timeless, the setting simteless, the plot timeless. I've listened to most every book Wilbur Smith has created in audio form and this one could be the best ever!
