Wilbur Smith is a talented and established author. I was hooked on his Egyptian series at a young age. The eye of the tiger is a well paced book with loads of sea/diving adventure. There is good character development before the actual undersea discovery part of the book takes place. The plot has a nice flow, no jumping around.

This book quickly grabbed me and led me down the path of several late nights reading when I should have been sleeping. He writes about contemporary Africa as well as the wild country of previous centuries. The plots he creates keeps me wondering what could possibly happen next but he doesn't disappoint . New readers of this author will swiftly join the food of his avid readers.

Nobody does it better. Well written, exciting story line. Hangs together from start to finish something a lot of today's authors should learn. I had kind of hoped for a sequel to this, but alas it has not happened. This is a man's story told for men by an author that understands how it works. if you like adventure stories you will like this story as well as most other stories by Smith.

Having sold 130,000,000 (?) books, Mr Smith really doesn't need a recommendation from the likes of me. That said, it is just plain wonderful to read. Who says old guys still can't write a cracking great story?

Rip roaring tale of adventure. Another great story of the sea. Constant action and enough twists to keep it interesting. The more I read the harder it became to put it down. Hope there is a follow-up.

I am a big Wilbur Smith fan having read many of his novels. But this one is not up to his normal standard. It was full of adventure but very very gorey and bloody. Much too much graphic violence for me. It is a story set around finding sunken treasure. Being a scuba diver, I thought it would be a fun read. But the scuba detail is very inaccurate. References to the bends and dangerous animal encounters that really don't happen that way. Plus the kindle conversion was full of bad text with many I's as 1 and some other words wrong made it distracting to read on Kindle. Skip this one.

I enjoyed reading this book. I'm looking forward to the next book. I have enjoyed all of the Courtney series and the Ballantyne series..

He switched from historical Africa to sea based story byut just as spellbinding. Am still a staunch Wilbur Smith fan can’t wait to read his next.
I got a sample (free thank goodness) and struggled to believe that this was the Wilbur Smith I read on The Courtneys and his great Egyptian books. This could have been written by a 10 year old. The writing was pathetic. I could not even finish the free sample. Beware if you are expecting anything at all from this book
