Just prior to the outbreak of World War I, Leon is recruited by his uncle, Penrod Ballantyne, Commander of the British Forces in East Africa , to gather information from Von Meerbach. He stumbles on a plot against the British involving the disenchanted survivors of the Boer War, but it is only when Eva and Von Meerbach return to Africa that Leon finds out who and what is really behind the conspiracy.

"No one does adventure quite like Smith." (Daily Mirror)
As I live in Africa, I can vouch for his knowledge of animals, the veld,koppies and the feel of Africa. He captures the harshness of the terrain and the history of the region and Southern Africa. - A truly great book
Interested in a variety of styles, but really enjoy earth based Science Fiction like Outlander and Hunger Games.
Yes, as always Smith is one of the best at not waisting a single word. Each word has meaning and keeps you wanting more.
