A perilous journey full of love, deception and delusion.

Set in the dramatic and raw landscapes of the Basque Pyrenees, Biafra and French West Africa, the story follows the plight of Jacques Freeman, a lonely brooding bachelor lamenting his days in the south of France after losing his home and family to a violent African revolution. Six powerful characters, three women and three men, interplay in this gritty and exhilarating novel.

"This book actually got by heart rate up more than current action movies ! Truly gripping and immersive like I was actually there" - Pete Turnbull, Personal Trainer

"I lost myself in this book. The intensity and 'edge of seat action' actually made me gasp out loud more than once. I definitely got some funny looks on the tube! My heart broke and my head was totally engrossed. What more can you ask for? I've recommended this to my friends and they've all agreed- exceptional read. I've just started reading it for the 2nd time and it is still getting my heart racing. Best book I've read in a long time." Samantha Kennedy - English Teacher.
