'Like all the best vintages Jack Lark has aged to perfection. Scarred, battered and bloody, his story continues to enthral' ANTHONY RICHES

Roguish hero Jack Lark - soldier, leader, imposter - crosses borders once more as he pursues a brand-new adventure in Africa. For fans of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series, Matthew Harffy and Patrick O'Brian.

CAN THE BATTLEFIELD SAVE A WANTED MAN?

London, 1868. Jack Lark is now a businessman, running a thriving club in the Whitechapel backstreets. But when he goes up against the East End's most notorious criminal, the consequences are devastating.

A wanted man, Jack joins the British army on campaign across Abyssinia, a high-stakes mission that returns him to the battlefield and on to the fortress of Magdala where the formidable Emperor Tewodros has taken British subjects prisoner.

But life on the run can turn dangerous, especially in a land ravaged by war . . .

'Brilliant' Bernard Cornwell

About the author

Paul's love of military history started at an early age. A childhood spent watching films like Waterloo and Zuluwhilst reading Sharpe, Flashman and the occasional Commando comic, gave him a desire to know more of the men who fought in the great wars of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. At school, Paul was determined to become an officer in the British Army and he succeeded in winning an Army Scholarship. However, Paul chose to give up his boyhood ambition and instead went into the finance industry. Paul stills works in the City, and lives with his wife and three children in Kent.
