Mystery Historical | Suspense
As a member of the remarkable Courtney family, Leon
Courtney knows how quickly fortunes can be won and lost.
Over the course of more than two centuries, generations of
his family have risen and fallen with the tides of
history. Leon, too, has experienced his own share of
triumph and pain. In the wake of his beloved wife’s death,
the renowned big-game hunter is raising his young
daughter, Saffron, alone in colonial Kenya.
In the 1920s, the continent of Africa is a dangerous
place. As Leon attempts to navigate the murky political
waters of this most exquisitely beautiful and wildest of
lands, his daughter grows into an independent and
headstrong young woman bound for a far different life in
Britain, as a student at Oxford.
But over the course of more than two decades, spies,
traitors, and adventurers will dog their every step. As
the fitful years of peace lead to the outbreak of the
Second World War—involving Africa once more—Leon and
Saffron must fight for their survival . . . and that of
their illustrious family.
