Another great book by Wilbur Smith. High adventure and love. Realistic descriptions of the area. Kept me reading and wanting to know more.

Bruce Curry sets out with a trainload of mercenaries to relieve a mining town besieged by rebels in the heart of the African jungle. The journey, turns into a nightmare, softened only by Shermaine, a Belgian girl he meets and with whom he falls in love.
But love is no elixir. In fact, it considerably complicates Curry's struggle to carry out his mission and stay alive. He finds himself buffeted by emotions he thought would never visit him again, and he notes with wry amusement his own distraction.
"If the phrase 'a man's book' has any meaning, it describes the powerful, savage story which packs murder and love, revenge and rescue, treachery and loyalty into a gripping fast-moving novel."
