From the cover: “It is the dawn of the eighteenth century. At the farthest edges of the known world, the mighty Honourable East India Company suffers catastrophic losses from pirates on the high seas.

After four years away from service, master mariner Sir Henry Courtney prepares for his latest and most dangerous voyage-a death or glory mission in the name of the Empire and the Crown.

But Hal must also think about the fate of his four sons. All are very different from each other. But each will have a crucial part to play in shaping the Courtneys’ destiny. Separated by the winds of hazard, adventure will rule their future -just as passion will forge their lives…

Wilbur Smith carries all the powerful drama and rich emotions of a bygone time into his action-packed tale of the sea. Monsoon is the new masterpiece from the world’s greatest storyteller.”
