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.

"Up there with the best"
We are blessed to be living in an era of very fine historical fiction. This series is amongst the best of the crop. Narration excellent, a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
