Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shout at the Devil Totally gripping story to the very end!! This is Wilbur Smith at his best. A combination of adventure, romance, and larger than life characters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shout at the devil OK book, but definitively not one of his better works. Still it was readable. What I didn!t like was that it vacillated between an an attempt at comedy and a serious adventure story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shout at the Devil Starts with a great humorous introduction of the principal characters. It then turns to deadly serious drama. An odd one for Smith, but a great stand-alone read on its own. Was made into a movie with Roger Moore and Lee Marvin in 1976.
