Meet The Author

"It's a strange paradox that a man gifted with too many talents can fritter them all away without developing a single one to its full.”"

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.  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.

Assegai is Wilbur Smith’s thirty-second novel, it follows The Triumph of the Sun in which the author brought the Courtney and Ballantyne series together. Assegai tells the story of Leon Courtney and is set in 1906 in Kenya. The events in the story are linked to and precede the outbreak of World War One.
