Publisher's Summary

From one of the world's most celebrated novelists comes an epic adventure set on the banks of the Nile in Khartoum, 1884.

In the Sudan, decades of brutal misgovernment by the ruling Egyptian Khedive in Cairo precipitate a fierce and bloody rebellion and Holy War headed by a charismatic new religious leader, The Madhi or "Expected One". The British are forced to intervene to protect their national interests and to attempt to rescue the hundreds of British subjects stranded in the country.

Along with hundreds of others, British trader and businessman Ryder Courtney is trapped in the capital city of Khartoum. It is here that he meets Captain Penrod Ballantyne of the 10th Hussars, as well as the British Consul, David Benbrook, and his three beautiful daughters. Against the vivid and bloody backdrop of the siege of Khartoum, in which British General Charles George Gordon is killed and the British retreat, these three powerful men fight to survive.

Rich with vibrant historical detail and infused with his inimitable powers of storytelling, The Triumph of the Sun is Wilbur Smith at his masterful best.

    "Another Page In The Courtney Saga"

    Set in the Sudan in the 1880s, this book contains all of the elements that make Wilbur Smith's books unforgetable - adventure, exotic settings, and personal courage. Audible needs to pick up Smith's Birds of Prey, the next book in this series.
