Simon Fonthill, along with his wife Alice, old friend Jenkins, and tracker Mzingeli, is travelling across the continent to Pretoria to meet with General Kitchener. When their train is derailed the quartet are forced to continue their journey on horseback, but are quickly surrounded by Boer commando leader General de Wet and his soldiers. Former captain and army scout Simon Fonthill must rejoin the British military and prove his ability as a commander, as he leads the battle to capture the elusive Boer leaders. With information that the next Boer move will be to attack the Cape Colony, Fonthill must race to locate and defeat the enemy forces in time.

About the Author:

According to author JOHN WOLCOX, an inability to do sums and a nascent talent to string words together steered him towards journalism – that and the desire to wear a trench coat, belted with a knot, just like Bogart. After a number of years working as a journalist, he was lured into industry. In the mid-nineties he sold his company in order to devote himself to his first love, writing. His Simon Fonthill novels have been published to high acclaim and he has also published two works of non-fiction.

Review:

For the rest, the novel, with its scenes of action and adventurous soldiering, should leave lovers of the Fonthill series, of which I am one, well satisfied. (Historical Novels Review)
