The sweeping saga of the Brigandshaws continues. From the elegant drawing rooms of England at war to the beauty of Africa and the wild deadly diamond fields of the diamond coast.
After completing his Oxford University degree, Harry Brigandshaw spends the summer at Purbeck Manor in the heart of the Dorset
countryside and home to his friend Robert St Clair. Whilst there, Harry meets Lucinda, Robert’s sister, who falls in love with him but he doesn’t
reciprocate her love. During a day out shooting, Harry receives a
telegram from Africa and he must return home immediately. Together, Harry and Robert set sail for Rhodesia.
The years pass and 1914 approaches with England declaring war on
Germany. With the war in full swing and those closest to Harry enlisting in the army, Harry’s brother is killed in action. Devastated, Harry enlists for
vengeance. As he moves up in the ranks, a past acquaintance from Oxford is also making a name for himself - the invincible killing machine, Fishy Braithwaite. As the war wages on, Harry is dealt several more blows as he attempts to stay alive and keep his family safe, but can he? With danger brewing around every corner, it is a formidable task.

"I like his author's style of writing and will fast become a favourite of mine. His plot and story lines suck you deep into the book and although there are many characters, they are true to life and easy to associate with."
