6 1.5-hour cassettesFrom the Back Cover:
New York Times bestselling author Wilbur Smith has set the standard for globe-spanning adventure, pulse-pounding suspense, and risk-it-all human drama. The Diamond Hunters delivers it―as two men with a passion for power fight to control a family legacy and
untold fortune in South Africa's dazzling and perilous emerald coast...
A FATHER'S LEGACY.
The Van Der Byl Diamond Company has been ruled to the death by its founder, Jacob, who has bequeathed the invaluable business to his son Benedict, his daughter Tracey, and unexpectedly to Johnny, his estranged foster-child―and his most bitter rival in diamond hunting. But the inheritance
does not come from paternal love, but from inconsolable hatred.
ONE SON AVENGED IT.
To Benedict, Jacob has made an unyielding demand...destroy Johnny. Ruthlessly jealous of his brother's success, Benedict vows to pursue his goal―across the roiling ocean waters that hide fabulous fortune
to the diamond-rich seabeds in the coral islands of Thunderbolt to a fabled cache of
riches waiting beneath the African earth.
ONE SON WOULD KILL FOR IT.
But as Tracey―and a long-lost love―enter the fray, what unfolds under the desert sun is a violent life-and-death struggle of greed, betrayal, passion, and murder that could consume them all.
"Smith is without rival."
