Publisher's Summary

In the heart of the African jungle, Bruce Curry is the leader of a mercenary band, with the dubious support of three white officers. His mission is to relieve a mining town cut off by fighting and to retrieve a priceless consignment of diamonds. Ranged against his ill-disciplined unit are bandits, guerillas, and hostile tribes. But there is another, even deadlier enemy: one of his own men.

What the Critics Say

"The pace would do credit to a Porsche, and the invention is as bright and explosive as a fireworks display." (Sunday Telegraph)

    Story
    "Very enjoyable."

    The Dark Of The Sun was vintage Wilbur Smith back when he was a good writer. Before he got so obsessed in putting perveted sex in his novels and delving into Egypt. Not as well written as When The Lion Feeds or A TimeTo Die, but I liked It

    "Okay"

    An easy read, but not up to standards that Smith sets in some of his later works.
