Jack Lark, once the Scarlet Thief, is back in The Lone Warrior by Paul Fraser Collard – and he’s about to march right into the bubbling centre of the Indian Mutiny. This series is perfect for fans of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell and ‘evokes the horror of that era with great brio. Enthralling’ (The Times)
Bombay, 1857. India is simmering with discontent, and Jack Lark, honourably discharged from the British Army, aims to take the first ship back to England. But before he leaves, he cannot resist the adventure of helping a young woman escape imprisonment in a gaming house. He promises to escort Aamira home, but they arrive in Delhi just as the Indian Mutiny explodes.
As both sides commit horrific slaughter and the siege of Delhi begins, Jack realises that despite the danger he cannot stand by and watch. At heart, he is still a soldier…
The Lone Warrior is a scintillating tale of battle and courage from the author of The Scarlet Thief.
