The Eye of the Tiger

For Harry Fletcher, life on St Mary's Island is good. He has a fine boat and a long list of rich clients eager to charter it for the big game fishing of the Mozambique Channel. He has a home amongst the palms above a white coral beach, and he has friends and pretty girls to share his paradise.

The Eye of the Tiger Book Cover

It takes one to recognise one. This was a man trained to live with, and by, violence. He was muscle, a soldier, in the jargon. I had hoped never to see this kind of barracuda cruising St Mary's placid waters. It gave me a sick little slide in the guts to know that it had found me out again.

He left that life behind. But that life hasn't left him . . .

Harry Fletcher lives a quiet life these days, running a tourist fishing boat from the peaceful island of St Mary's, off the South African coast. Then his next group arrives, with very specific instructions for Harry – instructions that suggest they know exactly who he is.

Before he knows it, Harry has been swept back into a world of greed and violence, of men who will do anything to get their hands on the treasure under the sea, and of women who are too beautiful to trust. But when the Great Mogul diamond is the prize, all Harry knows is that he'll do anything to get there first . . .

A gripping tale of one man's desperate attempt to escape his past, from global bestseller Wilbur Smith.
