About this title

Synopsis:

September, 1900. South Africa. Simon Fonthill, along with his wife Alice, “352” Jenkins, and tracker Mzingeli, is travelling to Pretoria to meet with General Kitchener. 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. When their train is derailed by hostile Boer forces the quartet are forced to continue their journey on horseback, but are quickly targeted and surrounded by Boer commando leader General de Wet and his soldiers. In this most recent addition to the series by John Wilcox, 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 find and capture the elusive Boer leaders. With information that the next Boer move will be to invade and 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.
