From the Back Cover :

In this explosive New York Times bestseller, acclaimed storyteller Wilbur Smith takes readers on an unforgettable adventure set against the gathering clouds of war...

HE MUST CHOOSE TO SAVE HIS COUNTRY

Ex-soldier Leon Courtney guides the rich and powerful from America and Europe on big-game safaris. After a successful expedition with U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, Leon became one of the world's most sought-after hunters. Now, he is about to find out that celebrity comes at a hazardous price.

OR FIGHT FOR THE WOMAN HE LOVES

Leon has been recruited by the British forces to gather intelligence on Count Otto von Meerbach, a German industrialist who builds aircraft for the Kaiser's growing army. As his safari guide, Leon is closer to the Count than anyone―and it's not long before he stumbles upon a plot that could turn the tides of the coming World War. But when he falls for the Count's beautiful mistress, Eva, all bets are off. Now Leon finds himself desperately in love, dangerously alone to stop the Count's plan...and in grave peril as he learns more about the enigmatic Eva.
