This book moves from Scotland to Malaya - before British Raj and now - and then to war-torn Vietnam and Cambodia...Virginia meets Gareth casually in the Western Isles, with no inkling of the sacrifice he must make for her. Maybe Rat Fergusson steals the whole story in his old paddle steamer, the QUEEN VICTORIA, as he sails down the Mekong River, across the delta and out on the China Seas - with inflammable cargo. But Gareth Grant keeps his promise. He flies like the swiftest eagle...
