Overview

The Diamond Hunters by Wilbur Smith

What power remains to a dying man? What act can he commission that will live on after him? There is an obvious answer: his will.

When we meet Van der Byl, he is so consumed with hatred and bitterness that we think he is dying of those two complaints. But no matter the cause, the illness is fatal. And at stake is more than his life...there is the Van der Byl Diamond Company and the two contestants for it, Van der Byl's son Benedict or his rival Johnny Lance.

"THE DIAMOND HUNTERS moves from Cape Town to London and back, from the sandstorms of the South African coastal deserts to the icy wastes of the South Atlantic. Like all Wilbur Smith adventures, action and characterization are superb!" (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

I am a big fan of Wilbur Smith, this was a good story that could have been better...not one of Smith's best works. The plot was very good, but the book seemed more like an unfinished manuscript than a finished book. The ending was abrupt and unsatisfying leaving lots of unanswered questions. There were no chapter seperations and it was difficult to discern when he was changing subjects. Additionally, I have never seen so many spelling errors in a finished book, virtually on every page. I would not recommend this book to others.
