Tragedy has struck twice, leaving one grief-stricken man and another fighting his demons. Will they ever be happy again?

It's post-World War 1. Harry Brigandshaw runs away to the Skeleton Coast to hide his grief and anger from anyone who cares. Several, lonely years pass before Harry returns to Elephant Walk putting aside his rage and sorrow to begin anew. But can he? Unbeknownst to him, a letter awaits his return. And yet again his future is thrown into turmoil!

Mad Dogs and Englishmen takes you to the roaring 20’s of London where beautiful, seductive women snare the wealthy, where cut-throat deals are made, and hedonism plays out at the supper clubs and theatre. Yet always, Africa is calling. Africa, where only the mad go out in the midday sun. Beckoning. Back to Elephant Walk. The heart and soul of the Brigandshaw family.

The unmissable Brigandshaws and the colourful character’s Peter Rimmer paints return in this eagerly awaited sequel to Elephant Walk. MAD DOGS AND ENGLISHMEN is the third book of the Brigandshaw Chronicles with ECHOES FROM THE PAST being the first.

"Just as all Peter Rimmer's books I found this one so enjoyable. Even with the hardships and heartbreaks you still feel the joy of life and the peace and calmness of seeing and being around the animals of Africa. They are incorporated into his stories in such a natural, realistic way that it makes you smile! I have gotten to know and love the people in this series and am anxious to get the next one to see how they are and what will happen next."
