    Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa. Through enduring friendships with Hymie and Gideon, Peekay gains the strength he needs to win out. And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice.

    Bob says: "Compelling story lifted higher by the narration"
    "Wow! This is what audiobooks are supposed to be..."
    Overall

    I am an audiobook junkie and this is the 5th Bryce Courtenay book I have "read". By far, one of the best books ever to have been recorded, Humphrey Bower is phenomenal in his ability to bring characters alive and make you love them, or hate them as the case may be. I would highly recommend this and all of the other Bryce Courtenay books! Most definitely worth the listen!!

    Story

    "In wartime," Winston Churchill wrote, "truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies." For Britain's counterintelligence operations, this meant finding the unlikeliest agents imaginable - including a history professor named Alfred Vicary.

    Brian says: "Riveting"
    "Good book I think..."
    Overall

    I have read/listened to many of Daniel Silvas books, and they are all very well written. The narrator on this one however leaves much to be desired. I think with a different reader, say a Scot Brick for example, I would probably rate this 4 or maybe even 5 stars. So if you don't mind much about the narration, then this is an excellent story with a good plot, however if the reader makes a difference, I would suggest another of Mr. Silvas works.
