Most interesting story of a remarkable man, with great persistence in planning and a lot of guts. He deserved better. Typical of petty trading politics as displayed by European colonisers all over the world. Read full review

Probably as close as we're likely to get to a portrait of Hannibal and his age, very satisfying both for the authentic feel of the book and as an exciting, moving story. Read full review
