Jake Barton, a tough, hard-punching engineer from Texas, and Gareth Swales, a stylish old-Etonian gun-runner down on his luck, make a lucrative arms deal with an Ethiopian prince, and dare to challenge the international blockade on land and sea to deliver a consignment of ancient and decrepit armoured cars to his beleaguered countrymen. Book 12 in the Standalone Books. READ NOW. A sample from Cry Wolf. To Jake Barton, machinery was always feminine – with all the female’s fascination, wiles and bitchery.

We need popular support we must reach the people. If the common peoples are informed of our lot, they will force their own governments to take action. It's a pretty thought," Gareth agreed. Travelling with me now is one of the most highly thought of and influential journalists in America. Someone who has the ear of hundreds of thousands of readers across the United States of America, and the rest of the English-speaking world as well

Cry Wolf by Wilbur Smith

The year is 1935, shortly before World War II. The "Wolf of Rome", Italy's army under Mussolini, is poised to invade Ethiopia, whose army is not only ill-equipped, but also severely outnumbered. Desperate to save his troubled land, Emperor Haile Selassie enlists American Jake Barton and Englishman Gareth Swales, two risk-takers who both share a taste for danger and the thrill of adventure. The mission seems simple: Deliver four ancient refurbished armored cars and Vicky Camberwell, an American journalist, in exchange for a hefty weight of gold. But soon Jake and Gareth realize that this is just the beginning of a long, harrowing journey that will take them from the sea to the scorching deserts of Africa to the peaks of its treacherous mountains, where a dramatic struggle to stay alive awaits them...

If a picture paints a thousand words then in order to craft a convincing story the writer has to deftly use his or her words in a way that a reader can not only see the picture but with word color and tones that give it life.
As a writer I hate Wilbur Smith. He's so good he makes me want to break my fingers so I can't pretend to turn out anything of the kind. His settings are paintings, his characters convincingly real, and his dialogue...yeah, well, suffice to agree with so many others here and elsewhere that's he's a gifted Master with his craft.
CRY WOLF is yet another living painting with words. Chapter after chapter he draws us deeper into the story with action, adventure, and a promise of a wealth of gold. His plot twists and tangles are deftly tied and untied as he takes us along with several soldiers of fortune with Haile Salassie's fight againt Mussolini's forces in Ethiopia.
Since I try to read a little bit of every writer out there to be better at what I do, I read EVERYTHING of Smith's. Will I ever rise to his level? Doubtful. But will I learn and appreciate what it takes to do what he does? You bet.
Wilbur Smith is a true artist in a field where most just offer sketches.

This novel is based on a time of shame of the civilized world when it stood still and watched as Mussolini's Italian Army and Air Force destroyed and murdered helpless Ethiopians as they took over the East African country in 1935 and 1936. The League Of Nations only placed an inaffective embargo on Italy; no one cared about a few grass huts being burned, just as they did not care about the Japanese or Germans waring actions in the late 30's. We all know what happened because of this inaction.

In this novel Wilbur Smith expertly brings the reader a small brutal piece of this war. His tale involves a Texan, Jake Barton, and Englishman, Garth Swales, and Vicki, a free lance news writer and how they get tangled up in the Ethiopian struggle against the mighty Italians forces. The author writes with no chapters, no blank pages, and this book is full of excitement, action, romance, humour, and graphic brutality from cover to cover. Wilbur Smith never lets me down as I found myself laughing out loud at different times and also crying. This was truly a hard to put down story.

There is more than a little Soldier Of Fortune here, guiltily read in the barber’s waiting room of my youth. Guilty pleasure aside, Wilber Smith is a treasure of a story teller. His writing is compelling and informative. No doubt if I did the research I would find his attention to detail absolutely extraordinary, as are the historical events he describes.
It’s not pretty, but war never is!
  • Mr_Mix
Liked most: Early character & story line development. Liked least: The rest of the book. Unbelievable scenarios, a series of completely stupid disasters, an apparent fascination with animal cruelty in detail, and finally -- a disgusting, foppish character who never meets his just deserts. I used to thoroughly enjoy Mr. Smith's books, but this one cured me of that.
  • Mr.Twister
This book was somewhat of a surprise since it is not the usual Wilbur Smith novel. He is one of a kind and I always thoroughly enjoy his books. I have many many copies of his books. He difinately has a gift for writing. His ability to describe a scene really brings it to life. I would much prefer to read a Wilbur Smith novel than to sit in a movie theater and watch a film.
  • Lailace
I love Wilbur Smith. Whatever he writes keeps me engrossed in his books. Historical views of places, clothes, treatment of people. The twists are always there. He is edge of your seat reading.
  • Dilmal
Fantastic story! The style of Wilbur Smith's writing. he could be writing about events going on today. No matter that he wrote this in the early sixties. I loved then and I loved it now.
The ending was somewhat anticlimactic. Coming from Smith you come to expect more. Will, however, look forward to his next book.
