ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Africa Orientale, 1906. Con l'appoggio dello zio, il colonnello Penrod Ballantyne, Leon Courtney si unisce ai King's African Rifles, ma ben presto, deluso dalla disonestà che regna nell'esercito, si rende conto che quella vita non fa per lui. Penrod, allora, che conosce la passione del nipote per la caccia grossa, gli propone una delicata missione sotto copertura: spacciandosi per un cacciatore professionista, dovrà spiare i movimenti dei tedeschi, che sembra si stiano preparando a combattere per la Germania del Kaiser, e raccogliere informazioni su un ricco industriale, il Conte Otto von Meerbach. Quello in cui si ritrova coinvolto è un gioco pericoloso e intrigante, eppure Leon non dimentica il suo vero obiettivo nemmeno quando conosce Eva von Wellberg, la bellissima ed enigmatica amante del magnate tedesco, e se ne innamora perdutamente. Ma cosa accadrà quando scoprirà che il vero nemico è molto più vicino di quanto abbia mai sospettato?

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:

Wilbur Smith has won acclaim worldwide as the master of the historical novel. Now, in 'Assegai' he takes readers on an unforgettable African adventure set against the gathering clouds of war. It is 1913 and Leon Courtney, an ex-soldier turned professional hunter in British East Africa, guides the rich and powerful from America and Europe on big-game safaris. Leon had never sought fame, but an expedition alongside U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt has made him one of the most sought-after hunters on the continent. Soon, he finds that with celebrity comes not just wealth—but also danger. Leon is recruited by his uncle Penrod Ballantyne, commander of the British forces in East Africa, to gather information on one of his clients: Count Otto von Meerbach, a German industrialist whose company builds aircraft and vehicles for the Kaiser's burgeoning army. While spying, Leon falls desperately in love with von Meerbach's beautiful and enigmatic mistress, Eva von Wellberg. On the eve of the World War, Leon stumbles on a plot by Count von Meerbach that could wipe out the British forces in Africa. He finds himself left alone to frustrate von Meerbach's plan, and in grave peril as he learns more about the enigmatic Eva. Set amidst the tensions that will spark a war across continents, 'Assegai' delivers the fast-paced action and vivid history that has made Wilbur Smith an internationally bestselling author.
