Harold Robbins, a novelist known for steamy passion in his works, stirs up passion of a different kind in The Adventurers, a story of revolution and danger in the sultry jungles of South America.
As a young boy, Diogenes Alejandro Xenos, witnesses the murder of his mother and sister by a band of marauders. As "Dax" grows to adulthood, he channels his fear and hatred into a desire for revolution, swearing revenge on those in power as he upsets the status quo. His actions make him an outlaw, living on the fringes of society in a land turned upside down with corruption. He is wanted by men and women alike-but for very different reasons.
This epic tale of escape from the horrors of a third-world regime is one of Harold Robbins' most ambitious novels ever, combining his trademark sensuality with political intrigue and a globe-spanning variety of exotic locales. Lose yourself in The Adventurers.

"Sorry when it came to an end"
Its not great lit, but it was very entertaining, I read the book years ago, and was excited when I saw it on audio.
I would recommend because you grow to care about the main character, its an very good story and will keep you interested.
I really enjoyed this book. Not enough detail on the gruesome bits though, but still and very good read.
"Harold Robbins at his best"
