The Tarantula was a diamond – a diamond as big as a man’s greed: many men would fight for it, some would kill, some would die.Martin Taggart found it, after six years’ grubbing in the steamy disease-ridden mines of Brazil.Charles Caine claimed it – he had sponsored Taggart and that was the deal.Paolo Estavez coveted it, and flew Caine and his entourage deep into the Mato Grosso to seek it out.But Helen could sense its evil power.It led them all into danger: into hostile country, clashes with Indians, desperate encounters with wild animals, hunger, thirst: many of them died.With the eye of a true traveller, the pace and action of a Wilbur Smith novel, Philip Caveney brings the terrors of the Mato Grosso to life. The pace quickens as Caine sets his mafia-like organisation in brutal pursuit leading to a final confrontation of breathtaking complexity and excitement.

Sebastian Darke; his snarky buffalope, Max; and fierce fighter Cornelius are off on another hair-raising quest after being hired by a rich merchant to seek out the legendary lost city of Mendip. Not only must they find it, they must bring back valuable proof of its existence. Sebastian doubts they’ll reach their destination after trudging through miles of jungle filled with warrior beasts and terrifying tribes. But then he meets the beautiful Keera, whose people believe he’s the Chosen One sent to free their tribe from their brutal enemy. Little do they know that Sebastian is definitely not the hero type. He just wants to bring back valuable proof of the lost city. But will the price they must pay outweigh the rewards?
