It is 1893 and in war-torn Southern Africa, James Martingell, a self made explorer, hunter and prospector, sells guns to whoever can afford them. When he is offered a fortune to deliver weapons to would-be Boer rebels in the Transvaal, this thinks he has struck gold. But he soon finds himself facing betrayal, imprisonment, open warfare and murder as he becomes involved with international arms traders. With his wife, children and reputation at stake, he cannot afford to be beaten. The first in the ‘Arms of War’ saga, this is a work of well-researched, evocative historical fiction.
