Shadows in the Sun
By Christopher Nicole
In 1918, James Martingell received a knighthood for equipping and supplying the British Army during the war. Now it wants to close him down – with the coming of peace there can be no more gun-running. As poverty is far from a welcome prospect, Martingell resumes negotiations with his old friend and ally Sheikh Azam ud-Ranatullah, branding himself a traitor to his country. ‘Shadows in the Sun’ is a well-researched, evocative, and smoothly authentic work of historical fiction.
