    Has anyone read any of his books? They're all set in Africa. I've only read a few. Two of them (The Sunbird and The Seventh Scroll) combine aspects of archeology with good old action and adventure. These works may appeal to some of the Indy fans out there.

    I'm gonna have to go with a big negative on this one.

    Yes, I've read many of his books - The Courtney series and the Ballyntine series are my favourites. The Leopard Hunts in Darkness is my all time fav book of his.

    I tend to think he's running out of ideas though, he keeps revisiting his old characters.

    Aye, the books about Sean Courtney are absolutely fantastic. Very, very highly recommended.'

    I'll have to read some of those Courtney books. I've only read the more recent "Taita" books.

    The first two - When the Lion Feeds and the other one (it's been a while) are the best two to read. Sean goes through a lot - wars, women and money - and it's a fantastic read.

    Not to mention his best friend dying of rabies. Cool chapter that one is.

    Sound of Thunder is the name of the second book in that series. It's about the Boer War basically.
