Product description

Title in the Courtney series of novels chronicling the lives of the Courtney family. Set in 1670 on the seas off the East African coast. The Golden Bough, captained by Henry 'Hal' Courtney, is running south from Ethiopia to Zanzibar. Below deck, both his crew and his lover, the fearless warrior Judith Nazet, sleep. As the moon glints through clouds, Hal sights a ship passing close by. Although there is an uneasy truce between the warring English and Dutch, Hal scents danger. When the Bough is boarded, the crew must go hand to hand to defend their ship and their lives. However, Hal will soon face even graver danger, as he discovers his mortal enemy still lives and is hell-bent on revenge. He must pursue his nemesis across desert savannah, through the seedy underbelly of Zanzibar's slave markets and shark-infested waters, imperilling his own life at every turn. But it will take more than a slave's shackles to hold Hal Courtney.

Grey cloth binding with black lettering and publisher motif to spine; colour pictorial dust-jacket.

Fine condition for a second-hand book, with only a small inscription to the half-title page.
