After Omdurman

(2008)
A novel by

 
 
In England, 1935, backbench Tory MP, the retired Colonel Evelyn Winters, is fighting a bill that will give India dominion status. He is also busy writing of his time as an intelligence officer during Britain's 1898 campaign to re-take the Sudan, when he was sent on a mission to track down a dangerous saboteur who threatened to halt Kitchener's advance on the Khalifa's army. Winters is assigned a new researcher, the affable yet idealistic young Parker. But Omdurman links the men in a way that Winters could never have foreseen. Moving between both periods, "After Omdurman" is a story of high adventure and quiet pathos; of the clash of civilisations, generations and ideologies. It is a story that resonates as much with the cataclysms of today as yesterday.
