PART 3 of 3

John Hutchinson VJ BooksOne of Britain’s most celebrated mystery writers is Wilbur Smith. Beginning with THE LION FEEDS in 1964, Smith has written over 30 books, most taking place in his native Africa.  His published novels have sold more than 120 million copies – each title an instant bestseller.

Recognizing that his readers want his stories faster than he can write them, Smith recently announced that he will be teaming up with co-writers to help him produce more stories surrounding his three different series, and a lifetime of memorable characters and locales.

Golden Lion by Wilbur SmithWilbur Smith’s latest title, GOLDEN LION, was just released in both the US and the UK.  Smith returns to his Courtney series, taking us on an incredible journey on the seas off the coast of Africa in the year 1670.

It is the story of The Golden Bough, a ship captained by Henry ‘Hal’ Courtney, on its run south from Ethiopia to Zanzibar. Below deck, both his crew and his lover, the fearless warrior Judith Nazet, sleep. As the moon glints through clouds, Hal sights a ship passing close by. Although there is an uneasy truce between the warring English and Dutch, Hal scents danger. When the Bough is boarded, the crew must go hand to hand to defend their ship and their lives.

In a thrilling blend of extraordinary drama and epic storytelling, GOLDEN LION sees Wilbur Smith return in triumphant form with a new adventure in one of his most beloved series.

In addition to these three, Her Majesty’s realm is home to many of our favorite writers:  Lindsey Davis, John Connolly, Mark Billingham, Andrew Taylor, S. J. Watson, Mark Lawrence, Anne Perry, Robert Galbraith, Ian Rankin, and Darren Shaw to name a few.
