Keep it hidden. Keep it safe. This cryptic message hints of treasure stolen from a Spanish fleet and hidden in the jungles of South America. A fevered ambition is unleashed in those willing to sacrifice everything as they seek control of the vast fortune. 'A Time of Giants' is a fast-paced adventure, bringing alive the frantic activity of the Atlantic trade routes in the 1700s. In these busy straits, merchant ships cross paths with slavers who deal only in the currency of human suffering. Here the fates of men shift as quickly as the wind. Be transported to the colourful marketplaces of Rio de Janeiro, fetid taverns filled with unsavoury revolutionaries, tropical jungles rumoured to hide secret treasures, garden parties on English country estates, and the salt-filled air of the high seas. In the tradition of Wilbur Smith and Clive Cussler, this is a story about the cost of forbidden love, the price of freedom, and the siren song of power and privilege.
